While browsing through ancient copies of The New Yorker, there’s always a little jolt when I come across a cartoonist whose name is unfamiliar. It happened today when I reached page 38 of the November 29, 1930 issue and found a cartoon by George Wilson. A quick check with The New Yorker database revealed that Mr. Wilson was published just once in the magazine. That of course qualifies him for immediate membership in The One Club, and a listing in red on The New Yorker Cartoonists A – Z. At the moment I have no additional information on Mr. Wilson. Please contact me if you do.
From Drew Friedman’s blog, March 15, 2013, “The Caricature of Robert Grossman” — Mr. Grossman is not only a New Yorker contributor but also worked as an assistant in the magazine’s Art Department in the early 1960s.
Finally, out of the scope of Ink Spill’s focus, but likely interesting to most comic art enthusiasts:
From the University of Florida, Department of English, “Comics Collections at UF” — I just happened upon this site, and admit I had no idea that U of F had a comics collection. If you link here, you’ll find more information on the collection as well as a link to their downloadable database.
