Biographical note

Walter Harrison Cady (1877-1970) was an American illustrator from Gardner, Massachusetts. Although best known for his work in the "Peter Rabbit" comic strip, Cady spent time in the Great Smoky Mountains and depicted the area and its people in several etchings. In an interview for American Prize Prints of the Twentieth Century (1949) Cady expressed "a great deal of interest in the mountaineers and in their simple ways of life; as well as in the mountains, the untouched forests, and the rushing mountain streams among which they live."
