Mission-Style Magazine Rack Finds New Purpose

I’m all about making old things relevant again. Form can have many functions, and I’m intent on keeping an open mind to how something old can be useful in other ways.
I picked up this Mission-style magazine rack in Baltimore recently. I paid more than I usually do for impulse buys (this was $30) but I still think I got a great deal. It appears to be homemade. No dovetail joints, nothing fancy, but it’s maker carved their signature on the bottom: “H. Nesbitt Jr.”.
I don’t subscribe to magazines anymore. But I do need a pretty and functional filing system for the paperwork I carry with me from state to state. This fabulous find works perfectly.
But who is H. Nesbitt Jr.?
