Cartoonist Photos Part 14

This is one of a continuing series of occasional blog entries of photos of cartoonists from the 20th century. (Honestly, one of them is exclusively from the 19th this time around.) Most of these are sourced from newspaper archives, and I post these when I have enough JPEGs for a blog entry. Links to even more photos to more cartoonists are at the end. There must be hundreds by now.

Art Young, circa 1910-1915, when he was co-editor and cartoonist for The Masses (along with John Sloan):

George du Maurier, also known for his granddaughter Daphne, who wrote "Rebecca" and "The Birds" among other good things. An argument for combining genetics and, presumably, setting a good example.
