Virginia Frances Sterrett
1900-1931

Virginia Frances Sterrett was born in Chicago, Illinois, in

1900.  Her father died when she was very young and the family,

consisting of her mother, herself, and a sister (Mary Sterrett)

, moved to Missouri to be closer to other relatives; later moving

to Kansas.  Most of her childhood was spend in these two

states.

 

In 1919 at the age of 19, she was given an opportunity to fulfill

her lifelong dream.  She was commissioned by the Penn

Publishing Company to illustrate Old French Fairy Tales by

Comtesse de Segur.  She completed the pictures – pen and ink

drawings and water colors – and received $500 for the work.

  After receiving the illustrations, the publishers paid her another

$250 for several line drawings for the inside of the front and

back covers of the book.  Another illustration job followed in

1921 with Penn Publishing Company again commissioned her

to illustrate an edition of Tanglewood Tales by Nathaniel

Hawthorne.  The favorite stories from Greek mythology gave

Sterrett another opportunity to exercise her talent and love for

the imagery of fantasy.
