Windsor McKay who?

I figured the blog would get some extra hits if I included a post with common misspellings...

So just for the record... It's Winsor, not Windsor. And it's McCay, not McKay or Mackay. You see his name spelled wrong almost as often as you see it right. Not that I blame anyone - they're both tricky. Imagine if he had continued going by his actual given first name too: Zenas!

I think the most ironic misspelling is on the Juried Awards section of the Annie Awards site. As they talk about the accomplishments that led to Canemaker winning the Winsor McCay Award, they mention that his tome on "Windsor McCay" is an essential reference!
