1953 George Booth Drawings for American Legion Magazine

Here are a dozen 1953 George Booth cartoon drawings for American Legion Magazine. These drawings were done for the "Parting Shots" section, a regular feature. As you can see, this is in a different style than he had developed later. Regardless, these are early, practically unseen George Booth cartoons and they are a lot of fun to see.

I had the pleasure of visiting with him and his daughter this summer. George talked about this time. We recorded it, and I am hoping our chat will become a published interview (with his approval, of course). A big thanks to Dick Buchanan for taking these American Legion magazines out of his collection and scanning and sharing. It was Dick's idea to do this and a wonderful idea it is!
