Born in Sacremento, California, Dan Sweeney (1880-1958) was an American illustrator best known for a series of luggage labels he designed for hotels in the Far East owned by Hong Kong & Shanghai Hotels in the late 1920s and 1930s. Luggage labels designed by Sweeney often incorporated careful and beautifully drawn images of the local people from the hotel destination, be it Hong Kong, Hanoi, Shanghai, Peking, or Manila.
Luggage labels by Sweeney are today highly sought after by collectors.
