W. HARRISON CADY (1877-1970), was "a man who
saw things that were not there" said editor and owner of
the old Life Magazine, John Ames, about this successful
illustrator who depicted nature with great fidelity and
imagination. Fantasy and friendly animals living in
ethereal magical worlds became Cady's trademark
and thus prompted his work on hundreds of books
and newspaper pages, Old Mother West Wind
and Peter Rabbit by Thornton W. Burgess in particular.

W. HARRISON CADY  werd geboren in 1877 in
Gardner, Massachusetts,  (USA) en is overleden in 1970

He was an American illustrator born, to a town selectman
and businessman, Edwin Cady. His father fostered
a love of nature and encouraged his art skills.

After his father's untimely death when Harrison was
eighteen, Harrison moved to New York City and found
work, first at the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper,
later at Life Magazine. This led to a long career as
a newspaper and magazine illustrator, as well as
numerous children's books, featuring both fantastic
and realistic animal illustrations. He had a long
association with the American author Thornton W. Burgess
and became best known for his works in Bedtime Stories,
a daily newspaper column created by Burgess.

Na de vroegtijdige dood van zijn vader (toen Harrison
achttien was), vertrok Harrison naar New York City
en vond daar werk, eerst op het Brooklyn Eagle krant,
later bij Life Magazine. Dit leidde tot een lange carrière als
krant en tijdschrift illustrator, evenals
vele kinderboeken, met zowel fantastisch
dier en realistische illustraties heeft hij op z’n naam staan.
