Biography: Howard Ferguson was a letterer who worked in the American comic book industry in the 1940s and 1950s. He is most remembered for his work with Simon and Kirby at several publishers, including Fox and Timely. He came to New York in the late 1930s from Detroit where he'd been working for an ad agency. He was noted as an inveterate smoker and coffee drinker, which are presumed to be the cause of his death in the late 1950s. The exact day and place of his death are unknown, but he was presumed to be living in the New York City area.

Ferguson had three marriages, none of which lasted long. He had two daughters, one with each of his first two wives.
