Harrison Cady

Walter Harrison Cady
American cartoonist and illustrator
1877-1970

Most closely associated with the books of Thornton W. Burgess, Cady was very prolific in other areas as well. He did newspaper comic strips and editorial cartoons, comic books and other children's books. These illustrations are from Raggedy Animals by Sherman Ripley, 1935 edition of a 1928 book, and Ant Ventures by Blanche Elizabeth Wade, published in 1924.

Thanks to David Miller, who provided these scans from his personal collection.

Dear Winsor, I have long loved Cady since I was a child. I found Mother West Winds Neighbors in the library and could hardly let it go. I've never seen these illustrations before and am smitten! I'm also a huge fan of Johnny Gruelle and some of these are quite reminiscent of his work. I also admire your personal clip art of YOU as the artist. What a joy it was to find your blog.
