Walter Paget

Walter Stanley Paget (1863-1935) was a British illustrator.

He had two brothers who were also illustrators (and who also illustrated some Conan Doyle's works) : Sidney Paget and Henry M. Paget. As a consequence, in 1891, when the Strand editor, George Newnes, asked art director W. H. Boot to find an illustrator for the Sherlock Holmes stories, the latter sent an offer to Walter Paget but the letter arrived to Sidney Paget.

After the death of Sidney Paget in 1908, the editor of the Strand chose various artists to continue the illustrations, and one was Walter.

In 1913, he did 4 illustrations for Arthur Conan Doyle's short story The Adventure of the Dying Detective.

He signed: 'Wal Paget'.
