Born in Canton, Mississippi, John McCrady had a deep exposure to southern culture during his childhood in Oxford, Mississippi.  His father was an Episcopalian minister who also taught philosophy at the University of Mississippi.

In the mid 1940s, he worked on a series of paintings of nostalgic scenes of the Deep South including images of steamboats, plantation, and cotton fields.  These works, very popular with the public, were exhibited at the Associated American Artist (showing 500 of 5618 characters).
