Wallace Tripp

A native Bostonian, Tripp was born on June 26, 1940.  He grew up in both New York and New Hampshire before attending the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, earning his bachelor's degree from Keene State College, and receiving a master's degree in English from the University of New Hampshire.  A teacher turned full-time illustrator, Tripp also ran a publishing house and designed greeting cards for his family-owned business called Pawprints, Inc.  An illustrator of over forty books, including some of the Amelia Bedelia series and Casey at the Bat, Tripp has since retired due to Parkinson's disease.
