A Picture (and Biography) is Worth 1000 Words
Author(s): Ronald G. Driggers

Paper Abstract

According to Wikipedia (so it must be true), the phrase “A picture is worth a thousand words” is attributed to an article by Fred R. Barnard in the trade journal Printers’ Ink in 1921. He went on to say later that he attributed it to a Chinese proverb so people would take it seriously.
