Arthur Dailey Photos

Arthur A. 'Pete' Dailey, photo taken at Eatons’ Ranch in the early 1920s.Arthur A. Dailey was a remarkable man - an artist behind the camera who can fill walls with prizes and awards from international photographic salons, an ad professional who was for more than 30 years close friends with Leo Burnett, the father of the modern ad industry, a business man who attracted people like Walt Disney through his excellence, the original creator of the Lucky Luke cowboy character, a wrangler and seasoned dude and buddy to artists like E. William Gollings, the famous painter of the American West, and Joe De Yong, the only apprentice to the great cowboy artist, Charles M. Russell.

"Mike (meaning Arthur Dailey) is one of the toughest advertising managers I have ever known or worked with - and I've known some dandies. And that's one big reason, believe it or not, why I like Mike."
- Leo Burnett on the occasion of Arthur Dailey's retirement from Santa Fe Railroads, November 27th, 1963.
Fred Gurley, President of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway; Walt Disney; Arthur Dailey, General Advertising Manager of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway; Leo Burnett, President of Leo Burnett Advertising Agency. They were discussing the creation of the Santa Fe and Disneyland Railroad. 1954.Arthur Dailey was at “home on the range.” Born in Omaha, Nebraska, he spent nearly sixty years (1912-1972) returning to Eatons' Ranch in Wolf, Wyoming where he held every job from waiter to wrangler and later was a seasoned dude. It was in the Bighorn Mountains that Dailey began shooting from the saddle.

Each photo is a piece of art and many are iconic images of the American West.

"Arthur Dailey's show was something else. Here was a visual presentation of 16 x 20 prints in full color ... an entire room full of masterful prints ... you just had to come up for a close look to convince yourself they were not paintings. Our day was made, for we had come upon a new name, a great talent ..."
- Jose Izuela in an article from Arizona Highways, October 1971.

"Photographs by Dailey are truly art."
- J. Douglas Hale, associate professor of art history at Arizona State University, 1971.

A young man, Arthur Dailey arrives in the West. 1919.As a teenager at Eatons’, Arthur Dailey learned the love of horses and how to photograph them in action and at rest. Photography was only a hobby then. Upon graduating from the University of Illinois, Dailey joined Eastman Kodak Company as a copywriter. When his boss saw the photographs that Arthur had taken, he transferred him to the photography department. It was there that Dailey learned and began to develop his extraordinary technique.

This training stood him in good stead when he traveled the world with his camera in the twenties. He sold his works to such publications as National Geographic, Saturday Evening Post and other magazines, newspapers and travel publications. During this period he also made a series of camping and trail riding photographs for Kodak’s advertising program. In the depression years he photographed a myriad of subjects – babies and children, Big Ten football teams in action, and fashion models.

Arthur Dailey boarding the Santa Fe and Disneyland Rail RoadIn the late ‘30s, Arthur Dailey took charge of the massive advertising program for the Santa Fe Railway system. The records reveal many national awards won for his Santa Fe ads and billboards which were familiar throughout this country. Several years before he retired from the Santa Fe in 1963, Dailey began exhibiting his black and white photographs in international photographic salons on all continents. His images won top awards – gold, silver and bronze medals and blue ribbons and trophies – at virtually every exhibition he entered.

It was only after retiring that Pete could devote full time to photography. In the late ‘60s, he branched into color and used it to depict the Western story. He was most intrigued, still, with the drama of horses churning up the dust as they ran freely in the hills and mountains and across the plains. In his search for perfection, Arthur was known to return repeatedly week after week to a location until the light and action were just right for the image he sought. Unlike most photographers, he tripped his shutter only once for each composition, and almost every picture he took was a winner.
