Brief Family History

The Cassidy family papers consist of the papers of artist Ira D. Cassidy, better known as Gerald Cassidy, and writer Ina Sizer Cassidy, both of them long time residents of Santa Fe, New Mexico. They were married in Denver, Colorado on January 10, 1912, and thereafter their professional lives were inextricably tied to the Southwest.
Gerald Cassidy was born in Covington, Kentucky on November 10, 1879 and was raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, where be studied at the Cincinnati Art Institute and, later, under Frank Duvenick. Although self-taught to a great extent, he also studied for a brief period at the Art Students League of New York and the National Academy of Design. His early artistic accomplishments were as a draftsman and commercial poster artist with a firm of lithographers in New York and later in Denver. In January 1912, failing health attracted him to Santa Fe where he built his home and settled for the rest of his life. In an effort to divorce his former commercial work from his new creative painting career, he began using the name Gerald Cassidy, as opposed to his earlier work as Ira Cassidy. At Santa Fe he excelled in painting portraits, desert scenes, Indian life and historic subjects. His prizes, awards and special commissions were numerous, and he exhibited regularly in New York, Boston, Chicago and throughout the West. A tour through Europe and North Africa in 1926-27 inspired additional paintings, and his works were purchased for inclusion in major public and private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. He died on February 12, 1934 while working on a large mural for the U.S. Federal Building in Santa Fe.
Ina Cassidy was born Perlina Sizer, in a log cabin on a cattle ranch near Las Animas, Colorado, on March 4, 1869. An early crusader for women's rights she was active in the Alliance of Unitarian Women as an organizer and lecturer for women suffrage in Washington, D.C. and in the Rocky Mountain states. She became an avid writer, too, and many of her short stories, articles, and poems were published in national literary journals and anthologies. In 1931, she began writing a monthly column, "Art and Artists of New Mexico," which regularly appeared New Mexico Magazine for over twenty years and was a major influence in promoting and encouraging young artists of the Southwest. She served as state director of the WPA New Mexico Writers Project during the late 1930s and as president of the New Mexico Folklore Society in 1948. New Mexico Place Names: A Geographical Dictionary, written in collaboration with longtime friend Thomas M. Pearce, was published after her death which occurred at Santa Fe on September 9, 1965.
