Description: Watercolor drawing on paper. Image measures 6 5/8" x 5 5/8".

Comments: This original watercolor drawing by Daniel C. Beard depicts a pair of iron rimmed classes and their accompanying pasteboard case. The drawing dates from 1892, when Beard worked as an illustrator for books by Mark Twain, Ernest Crosby, and others. The choice of subject matter no doubt relates both to his early career as an engineer and surveyor, as well as to his later dedication to the pioneering spirit through his involvement with the Boy Scouts of America. This original drawing is in good condition with a charming yellow border. Daniel Carter Beard (1850-1941) was an American illustrator, author, youth leader, and social reformer. In 1905, he founded the Sons of Daniel Boone, a youth organization that taught American frontier traditions and skills to young boys. In 1910, he merged his organization with the Boy Scouts of America and became actively involved in the Scouts and other youth organizations.

Howdy and Happy Fourth of July. Just want to let you know that the Dick Grace book came. A nice copy, as promised. Grace was quite a fellow: the only person I ever heard of who crashed planes for a living and died of old age. I was in The Argosy once, years ago, 1997 or so. Hope to get in again one of these days, but NYC is a long way from here. Thanks again for helping me out with this. Best - Bob H.
