daughter of George Gebbie, Philadelphia's first art publisher.
Her most famous creations were the Campbell's Soup kids in
a milestone in American advertising. At the age of
seventeen, she began her commercial art career, and within a year she
sold her first magazine illustration. She and her sister,
Margaret Gebbie Hays, created a series of newspaper features with
Margaret's verses and Grace's illustrations. She married (and
divorced) twice, first to Theodore E. Wiederseim (the advertising
executive that snagged the Campbell's Soup account), and then to W.
Heyward Drayton III.
