George Washington Hood- Cover designer

George Washington Hood designed the book cover on the Deering of Deal book shown a few days ago.

If you look at the fence post that the boy has his left hand on, you can see the initials GH.

George Washington Hood (1869-1949) was an illustrator and a painter who designed a number of covers in the first and second decade of the twentieth century. He attended the National Academy of design and lived in New Jersey. Although he was known as a children's book illustrator, he also sold paintings done in watercolor and oils.
