Hi, thanks for great article. I've been trying to find a book from childhood with H.W.Frees photos that are all about Easter and featured rabbits primarily. It was large in size, full color, and I cannot even find mention of it despite my research online. Any ideas?

What kind of this crappiest website? You supported his work as dressing up on animals for hours? I truly hated what Harry W frees' guts because of his work with animals. He was a horrible man. He was/is and will always be an animal abuser because he dressed up on poor animals and force things with them? What kind of dick is he? I'm glad he is not here otherwise he would be in jail! He's so fucked up! Wake up, people!!!

PS, to find this, I searched "Agamemnon the kitten", which got me to this article with many of his pictures, and the name of the author: http://tparty.typepad.com/the_tcozy/2013/03/four-little-kittens-possibly-the-cutest-book-ever.html
With the author's name, I found your website article, which has much more info about the photographer himself.

I was cataloguing a copy of LITTLE FOLKS OF ANIMAL LAND for sale, and wanted to learn more about the obscurd photographer who created these set shots. It is quite sad to learn that he died in solitary poverty. He earned better, and I am pleased that Ms. Bradford has helped to keep his memory green -which is more than his publishers did!

Hello -

Thank you for your information on Harry Whittier Frees. I am a big fan and there is VERY LITTLE information anywhere.

My new album, All the Children Love 4th Sign of the Apocalypse, was just released in Italy and each panel of the CD features one of Harry's photos. I am also the proud owner of The Sandman series of books. If you, or anybody else, would like to correspond about him, I would be more than happy to!

Thanks again,
Bryin

However, you've added much more info than I knew...like the other books & magazine articles & Harry Whittier Frees' bio, of which I was unaware...and about Mrs. Bradford. It's great to know there are others who love this man's work! Wish I could have known him. Thank you!

Hi, I stumbled across your site when I was lloking up God and what he says about animals. I have a website that was first about selling flowers and floral gifts then I added greeting cards of my animals that I have and wildlife. My passion is to rescue anything that needs a home. We have 12 acres and the sales from my site go towards care for animals. I also educate on my site the horrors that animals face. I am doing a lot of letter writing to senators, govenors and trying to get stiffer laws. I send letter s to everyone in the phone book onhow they can help. Please visit my site and let me know what you think. Keep in touch we have the same goal. Jane Ontario, NY

I recently rediscovered our book of The Little Kittens. I think it may have belonged to my Mother as a child who passed it along to us as kids. Those photos just melt your heart and I started doing a little online research about Harry Whitter Frees. I was surprised to learn he was born in Reading, PA and lived in Oaks, PA, since I live and grew up in Lititz, PA. I'm really enjoying these pictures on your website. I didn't know he produced so much adorable work. Thanks for posting it.

I'm an animal Lover and photograher so I'm glad to have learned that they were treating kindly during the photo shoots.

Hello!
Your site is amazing and soooo informative. I have been searching everywhere for information on books with photos by Harry W. Frees, since i would like to use the books on my website, Bunny Ears TV (www.bunnyears.tv). Of course it has not been easy to find any of the old publishers.....Do you have any information on how to contact Anne R. Bradford? Im thinking that she may have an idea about copyright issues, since she has gone through some of these issues in order to publish her books.

Thanks again for a wonderful site.
all the best,

I have a 1935 copy of a compilation of all three stories, Four Little Kitties, Four Little Puppies and Four Little Bunnies all in one book. It's very old and tattered and missing it's cover.
