Brush, an Indianapolis clothing merchant, who employed the young man to take charge of the advertising department of his store.  In this latter employment the distinctive character of his work attracted much attention and he presently was persuaded to join the advertising  staff of the Indianapolis Journal.  There he speedily earned his spurs, his work attracting attention in the East and he was presently employed as a feature writer on the Baltimore American, his column in that paper, written under the nom de plume of "Josh Wink," quickly becoming recognized as one of the best bits of feature writing done in the country.  For three years Mr. Nesbit remained in Baltimore and then he responded to the inducements that meantime had been made to get him back into the Middle West and in 1899 became a feature writer on the staff of the Chicago Tribune, later going over to the Post and in this connection continued to earn additional laurels.  After awhile he accepted an attractive offer from the Mahin Advertising Company of Chicago to become the director of the copy staff of that concern.  Not long afterward he assumed a proprietary interest in the concern, which at the same time changed its name to that of Ranking Advertising Agency.  Mr. Nesbit has long been recognized as one of the most versatile figures in literary circles in the United States.  His great poem, "Your Flag and My Flag," is known probably to as many persons as is Riley's "Old Glory."  As a librettist, Mr. Nesbit's fame Girl of My Dreams, " while in poetic and other productions he is known as the author of numerous volumes of a pleasing character.  Mr. Nesbit now makes his home at Evanston, a suburb of Chicago.  In 1899, while living at Indianapolis, he was united in marriage to Mary Lee Jenkins, daughter of Dr. John Jenkins, of that city, and he and his wife have three sons, Richard, Robert and Wilbur D.
