Walter Hunt Everett
One of the most promising young illustrators ever to work for The Saturday Evening Post was Walter Hunt Everett (1880-1946)
Tumblr media
Everett’s childhood revolved around his drawing and painting. He rode a bicycle 30 miles to take art lessons from Howard Pyle, who immediately recognized Everett’s potential. When he graduated from Pyle’s school, Everett quickly found work for some of the most prestigious illustration markets in the country.

“Pan Playing the Flute”
In the 1930s at the peak of his career, in what must have been by an act of howling madness, Everett “gathered the bulk of his life’s work,” burned it to ash and disappeared from illustration forever.
His family reported that he moved to the small, quiet town of Parker Ford, Pennsylvania where he seems to have spent his remaining years chipping away at stones to make arrowheads. He purportedly made thousands of them.
Instead of a rich legacy of hundreds of paintings left behind by other Post illustrators such as Rockwell and Leyendecker, Everett left behind a cardboard box full of arrowheads.
After his death his son, Oliver Everett, discovered a collection of 25-30 original oil paintings on canvas that had been rolled up in a barn on his property. These works remain in the Everett family and are understood to be the largest single collection of Walter H Everett's work.

Moth and her three sisters!
Left to right is Ama, the youngest and Moths favorite, then the second eldest, Ursula, then Moth, and then everyone’s eldest sister Priscilla.
I love writing families, and home and family are major themes of the Ferryman Story
