This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Walter Hemenway was born April 8, 1885 in Gardner, Massachusetts to Walter Hemenway and Ida (Gale) Balcom.  He graduated from Gardner High School in 1904 and later from the Norwich Art School in Norwich, Connecticut and the Art Student League of New York..

Hemenway was noted as an artist, particularly for his sporting scenes for such magazine covers as National Sportsman, Hunting and Fishing, Outdoors, and Outdoor Life.

A friend and colleague, Norman Rockwell once said that "there wasn't another artist in the country who could paint expressions in the faces of animals and birds as well as Walt did."  Hemenway visited the Rockwell home in Arlington, Vt. in 1943.

Hemenway died on Nov. 21, 1951 in Gardner, Mass. at the age of 66 and is buried in the family lot of the Green Bower Cemetery (less than a quarter of a mile from his home in Gardner at 70 Union St.).
