Artist. Designer. Composer. Musician. Writer. There were few things Henry Worrall didn't do but he is best known for having drawn an image, titled "Drouthy Kansas." That single image is credited with best promoting the early settlement of Kansas.
His illustrations appeared in Harper's Weekly, and Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper.
He was hired by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad to illustrate its magazine, Rocky Mountain Tourist. He traveled throughout Kansas, the New Mexico Territory and Colorado.
He made a large wood carving of the seal of Kansas surrounded by products of the state, which was exhibited at the Centennial exposition at Philadelphia in 1876.
Never miss a local story.
