Ethel Hays (18921989) was an American syndicated cartoonist specializing in flapper-themed comic strips in the 1920s and 1930s. She became an art teacher in army hospitals after the beginning of World War I, at the same time taking a correspondence course in drawing herself. When the editor of the Cleveland Press saw her work, she was immediately hired as a staff illustrator. She drew in an art deco style. Some of her more notable art was Raggedy Ann and Andy material for the Saalfield Publishing Company of Akron Ohio. In the later part of her career, during the 1940s and 1950s, she became one of the country's most accomplished children's book illustrators. Ethel Hays' first syndicated strip was called 'Ethel', and consisted of satire and social commentary. She also made a one-panel cartoon about 'Flapper Fanny', and in 1928 she started doing Sunday pages.
