Summary

Slow Ball Cartoonist takes readers on a journey to an earlier era in America        when cartoonists played a pivotal role each day in enabling major daily newspapers to touch        the lives of their readers. No American cartoonist was more influential than the Chicago        Tribune's John T. McCutcheon-the plainspoken Indiana native and Purdue University graduate        whose charming and delightful cartoons graced the pages of the newspaper from 1903 until his        retirement in 1946.This book chronicles McCutcheon's adventure-filled        life, from his birth on a rural small farm near Lafayette in 1870, to his rise as the &quote;Dean        of American Cartoonists.&quote; His famous cartoon, Injun Summer, originally published in 1907,        was a celebration of autumn through childlike imagination and made an annual appearance in        the Tribune each fall for decades. McCutcheon was the first Tribune staff member to earn the        coveted Pulitzer Prize for his poignant 1931 cartoon about a victim of bank failure at the        height of the Great Depression. Born with an itch for adventure, McCutcheon served as a        World War I correspondent, combat artist, occasional feature writer, portrait artist, and        world traveler.While the gangly and tall McCutcheon looked the part of        the down-home characters featured in his cartoons, the world-wise flavor of his work        influenced public opinion while making readers smile. Hard-hitting and even vicious attacks        on public figures were common among his contemporaries; however, McCutcheon's gentle humor        provided a change in pace, thus prompting a colleague to borrow a phrase from baseball and        anoint him &quote;the slow ball cartoonist.&quote;Slow Ball Cartoonist is a timeless        story about a humble man who made the most of his talents and lived life to the fullest,        being respectful and fair to all-including the targets of his cartoonist's        pen.
