Nephew of the panoramist, Samuel B. Waugh, Henry Waugh arrived in Indianapolis at age 18 or 20 as a member of a theatrical troupe. During the winter of 1853 he assisted Jacob Cox of Indianapolis in painting a 30 scene temperance panorama. While in Indianapolis Waugh also did scene and banner painting and exhibited some landscapes. In order to earn money for study abroad he became a circus clown, under the name “Dilly Fay”. Eventually he went to Rome for six years, but he died of consumption in England on his way home. Waugh exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy in 1862 Sources: Falk, Peter, ed.
