If it’s “trivia,” it must be Tuesday! Here’s our TriviaTuesday question for March 19, 2019:
Which accompanying comic strip from the March 19, 1953, Middletown Journal was drawn by the Ohio native whose gift of artwork helped establish a cartoon library and museum at Ohio State University?
Congratulations, “Steve Canyon Fans”! Canyon creator and Hillsboro, Ohio, native Milton Caniff (1907-1988) is the famous cartoonist whose collection of artwork helped establish the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum on the campus of Ohio State University in 1977.
Ireland (1880-1935) was a Chillicothe, Ohio, native and Columbus Dispatch editorial cartoonist whose clever images heaped praise or rebuke on the issues of his day. To this day his work remains a testament to freedom of the press...in print or in art.
