Title: Alfred and William Waud Collection

The London-born Wauds' specialty was producing drawings--from quick sketches to finished works--of places, people, and events assigned to them by editors. These drawings were the basis for wood engraved illustrations in the periodicals published by their employers. Alfred Waud was hired by the New York Illustrated News in 1860 and he remained with the News for nearly two years covering the opening months of the Civil War before joining the staff of Harper's Weekly in early 1862. William Waud worked as a special artist during the Civil War for Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper. The Waud Collection presents a visually fascinating history of America in the mid-19th century, covering visually subjects as diverse as the reconstructed South, and the townships that dotted both banks of the nation's largest river system.
