Mr. Robinson’s entry on the Spill‘s A-Z:
Boardman Robinson Born, Nova Scotia, Sept. 6, 1876. According to Maurice Horn’s World Encyclopedia of Cartoons (Chelsea House Publishers, 1980), Beginning in 1910, while working at the New York Tribune, Robinson “exerted more influence on his profession than almost any other cartoonist over the years. With Robert Minor of the Pulitzer papers, Robinson explored the use of lithographic crayon as a means of shading on paper for editorial cartoons…it remained a convention of editorial cartooning well into the 1960s.” New Yorker work : 1925 – 1926.
