R. C. Lehmann
There is also Rudolph Lehmann (artist) (1819-1905)
Rudolph Chambers Lehmann was an English writer, best known for his tenure for three decades as editor of Punch magazine; and for his children John Lehmann, Rosamund Lehmann and the actress Beatrix Lehmann (1903-1979).
He had a varied career, being president of the Cambridge Union Society, a Liberal Party MP, editing the Daily News and as a playwright, before settling as editor of Punch (c. 1889 - 1919). He wrote verse, mostly light; he is sketched in A History of Punch by R. G. G. Price as indolent, but able to rouse to write a short piece, and as having given some of that character to the rest of the staff. Perhaps in keeping, he was considered an authority on rowing, about which he wrote a book. Other books derived from Punch writing, such as The Vagabond and Other Poems from Punch.
