George Booth, who began contributing to The New Yorker in 1969, was honored a few days ago by the The Berndt Toast Gang at their annual shindig out at Bunny Hoest’s Long Island home. Pictured above is Mr. Booth’s cake, featuring his now iconic “Booth dog” (Mr. Booth officially turns 90 this coming week). Among the many cartoonists attending were a number of New Yorker colleagues including Sam Gross, Arnie Levin and Mort Gerberg.
