Johnny Gruelle (December 24, 1880 – January 9, 1938)

Gruelle was an artist, political cartoonist, children’s book author
and illustrator (and even songwriter). He is known as the creator
of Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy. He had such confidence in
his work that he would often create the final ink work without first
sketching in pencil. Gruelle spent a year in Ashland, Oregon from
1923–1924.
