“I’m happy when my cartoons show up on people’s refrigerators, so the Speaker’s desk is pretty great.”

From Salon, October 21, 2001, “The New Yorker writer that time forgot,” this review of a Wolcott Gibbs anthology, Backward Ran Sentences
[ in the earliest days of The New Yorker, Gibbs, as Katharine White’s assistant, was given the sometimes unenviable task of hand holder, which meant talking to the artists, sending them notes, handing them rejections, etc..
Charles Addams fans might remember that Addams illustrated several book jackets for Gibbs, including Season in the Sun (Random House, 1951) and More in Sorrow (Holt, 1958) ]
