After Thomas Nast's death, Sallie had nothing left but her home and Nast's collection of drawings, letters, and mementos. Albert Bigelow Paine's financial success in writing Thomas Nast's biography, however, did not benefit Sallie Nast. This conclusion discusses Thomas Nast's legacy. Nast was widely praised and today, his position as the father of American political cartooning remains unchallenged. His work is widely available in monographs, compilations, and on the internet. HarpWeek.com, a website that has made Harper's Weekly available to the public, has embraced Nast as its primary celebrity.
