Biographical Sketch

Clement Hurd was born January 12, 1908 in New York, New York. He attended Yale University, graduating with a Ph.B in 1930 and later studied painting in Paris with the artist Ferdinand Leger. In 1938, Clement Hurd illustrated his first book for children Bumble Bugs and Elephants, by Margaret Wise Brown. Throughout his long and prolific career as an illustrator and author of children's books, Clement Hurd would produce dozens of high-quality illustrations, including those for two "classics" by Margaret Wise Brown The Runaway Bunny and Goodnight Moon . Clement Hurd collaborated on many books with his wife, the author Edith Thacher Hurd. The Hurds worked on several series of books including the "Mother Animal" series that depicts the relationship of various animals with their young and showed the Hurds' strong interest in nature and ecology. Clement and Edith Hurd also worked together on many of Harper and Row's "I Can Read" books entertaining young readers with their likeable characters such as "Johnny Lion." Their son Thacher Hurd would also become an author and illustrator of children's books and all three worked on Little Dog Dreaming published in 1967.

Throughout his career, Clement Hurd worked in variety of media including ink, pencil, crayon, and wood block and linoleum prints. His illustrations have been praised by critics for decades for their ability to illuminate a story and characters as well as for their accuracy in depicting nature and animals. In 1984, Clement Hurd represented Margaret Wise Brown and her editors and illustrators as the recipients of the 1984 Kerlan Award. Clement Hurd died on February 5, 1988 in San Francisco, California.
