We are excited the announce that the Henry Raleigh Collection finding aid is now available online!

Henry Raleigh was an American Illustrator, mostly active between 1910-1940. Known as the Gatsby Era Story Illustrator (Chris Raleigh), Henry created story illustrations for many well-known authors, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Agatha Christie, and H.G. Wells. Raleigh started off as a newspaper artist, but later became widely respected and sought after for his unique and distinct style of illustration. He also created numerous illustrations for advertisements, several posters for WWI, etchings and lithographs. By his 25th year as an illustrator, he had completed over 20,000 illustrations, and did very well for himself during the Depression.

The Modern Graphic History Library collection contains original illustrations, concept sketches, etchings, lithographs, books, periodicals, magazine tear sheets, photographs, and professional development materials from Henry’s personal scrapbook.
