This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1895, Ralph Waddell Douglass had a varied career focused on the art world. At various times in his life, he was a painter, graphic artist, cartoonist, illustrator and designer, but first and foremost he was an educator. He studied at Monmouth College in Illinois, where he received his B.A. Following graduation, he attended the Academy Julian in Paris, Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Students League in New York City.

At the age of 25, he became an instructor at the American University in Cairo, Egypt. Leaving Africa, he headed to Chicago where he became a staff artist and cartoonist for the "Chicago Daily News". He was drawn to New Mexico where, at the height of the Great Depression, he accepted the position of professor of art at the UNM and subsequently became head of department for ten years and where he remained until 1961.

He designed and illustrated a series of children's books also for the University of New Mexico and designed the 1950 book by Frank Waters, "Masked
Gods", one of the first explorations of ceremonialism in the Navajo and Hopi cultures.

In 1953 he received an honorary doctorate from his alma mater Monmouth College. He exhibited nationally including Washington Watercolor Club, Carnegie Institution, Northwest Printmakers, New Haven Print Collectors Club, University of New Mexico and various New Mexico venues.

He died in 1971.
