Vawter John William (Will) [Male] b. 13 APR 1871 Boone Co. VA - d. 11 FEB 1941 Brown Co. IN

WILL VAWTER
Will Vawter, whose full name was John William Vawter, was born in Boone Co. VA, 13 April 1871. He was the son of Dr. Louis A. Vawter & Emma Mary Damson (385 Bicknell) . Lineage: Edward, William, William, John Henderson, Louis A., & Will Vawter.
From the time his hands were able to hold a pencil, he showed a marked talent for drawing which was encouraged by his mother.
He married May Howey Murray in 1902 ending in divorce 17 years later. In 1923 he married Mrs. Ola Lackey Genolin of Nashville.
From 1908 Will made his home in Brown County, IN until his death 11 Feb. 1941 at age 69. Some of his finest work was of that picturesque corner of the state which were landscapes of hills, trees, streams, and country roads in all seasons of the year. If he had any preference it was for winter scenes.
Although nearly 20 years younger than James Whitcomb Riley, the two men, poet and artist, became close friends. With the exception of a few volumes, all the Riley books were illustrated by Will Vawter.

VAWTER/VAUGHTER (S) NEWSLETTER JUNE 1979 ISSUE NO. 7
Artistic accomplishments of the V/V have come to light recently from various sources. John William (Will) Vawter, son of Dr. Louis A. and Emma Mary (Dameron) Vawter (tribe of Edward, the Builder) was an artist and illustrator for the books of James Whitcomb Riley. LoRee Vawter Dennis reports that her family has a book entitled "Riley Farm Rhymes" by James Whitcomb Riley,. artist pictures by Will Vawter, copyright 1883. Virginia Groseclose wrote that she had owned some of the Riley books, but in her many moves as wife of a Methodist Minister, they had been misplaced.

NEWSLETTER MAY 1980 ISSUE NO. 10
One of the nicest gestures to reach the editor's desk recently came from Donald D. Ritchie, 49 Claremont Ave., N.Y., N.Y. 10027, whose wife, Nancy Vawter Ritchie, died Jan. 19, 1980 (VVVNL No. 9, p. 2, para. 1). Mr. Ritchie offered to the VVV Association a copy of James Whitcomb Riley's Farm Rhymes, illustrated by Will Vawter, 1921 reprint of the 1883 edition; and a metal, enameled sign, Valletort Place, which he had rescued from a rubble of bombed-out Plymouth, England during WW II; stating that he felt they should be in the possession of someone named Vawter. President Jim Vaughters lost no time in contacting Mr. Ritchie and claiming these mementoes for the family association. These items will become the first in the anticipated "Vawter Collection".

REMINISCING
From PAUL E. VAWTER. SR. - 3801 Mission Hill Road, Northbrook, IL 60062
I shall never forget WILL VAWTER, a large stooped shouldered giant. Back then he and James Whitcomb Riley were not only good friends but close drinking buddies. I visited with Will and his second wife at studio and adjoining house, both very modest.
He had a fine reputation as an illustrator and as a landscape artist. He won many prizes for his work at the annual Hoosier Art Salon sponsored by the Chicago Tribune. Many of his works were reproduced in the Sunday Tribune.
After his death his remaining works were placed in the Hoosier Salon in Indianapolis. We bought one of his landscapes, Spring Scene. Most of his work was done by knife rather than by brush.

George's middle name will be seen in many places as "Robeson". According to Jim Vaughters, a great grandson, a local sheriff named George Robinson was a good friend of George's father, Linzey (Linsey) Vaughters. It seems likely that George was named for him.
