    Just curious about where you found the photo of Leslie D. Ragan. I have an original photo (same pose) since he was my father’s cousin. I think he was in the army not the Air Force. The “Air Force” was not called that until WWII. Leslie served in the 21st AFRO SQDN. Amex Forces in France, and I believe that would have been the army. Not really important, but would like to know for my own information. If you can tell me where you got the information I’d be very appreciative. My family has just one or two very early originals that were done on paper but were signed Leslie D Ragan probably when still in school.

    What can you tell me about his original works? I believe I have the original of his 1952 BUDD Western Pacific railroad car. Thanks and I hope to hear from you.

    Wow! NYC had their very own Grif Teller! Thank you for all of your hard work in digging up this cool stuff. Your blog is awesome.

    Leslie Ragan was my great uncle — you have a great collection of pics of his posters. Some I had never seen before. My mother has several original oils but none of those fabulous posters.

    Great article! Another important NYC Railroad artist was Walter Greene. He did some very impressive work in the 1930s.
