C. Walter Hodges

Cyril Walter Hodges, known as C. Walter Hodges (1909-November 26, 2004), was an English illustrator and author. Born in Beckenham and educated at Dulwich College and Goldsmiths' College, he spent most of his career as a freelance illustrator.

For many years he did line drawings for the Radio Times. Among the writers for children with whom he collaborated as an illustrator were Ian Serraillier, Rosemary Sutcliff, and Elizabeth Goudge (The Little White Horse). His own non-fiction book for children, Shakespeare's Theatre, won the Kate Greenaway Medal for illustration in 1964.

During a year spent in New York he was encouraged to write, as well as illustrate, his first book, Columbus Sails, a work of historical fiction for children which proved popular on both sides of the Atlantic and led to several more examples. A lifelong love of theatre led to him becoming an authority on the construction of the Globe and other theatres of Shakespeare's time. He also designed costumes and scenery for the Everyman Theatre, Liverpool (1928-30) and for the Mermaid and St George's Theatres in London in the 1950s.
