Deathless Deer, by Neysa McMein 1942

Neysa McMein, whose original name was Marjorie which she changed to Neysa on the advice of a numerologist, was a popular illustrator and portrait artist in the beginning of the twentieth century. She was the artist on every cover of McCall's magazine between 1923 and 1938, and also provided covers for the Saturday Evening Post. In 1942 she came up with a comic strip, 'Deathless Deer', written by Alicia Patterson. In her personal life, Neysa McMein was a very unconventional and avant-garde woman, involving herself with pro-suffrage demonstrations in the 1910s and the illustrious group of writers and artists called the Algonquin Round Table.
