Campbell E. Simms
More Cuties in Arms
David McKay Company, 1943. Original red white and blue paper covered boards with cartoon of a soldier and his lady on the front. Paper on spine has come away from spine at front gutter but is still present. Hand soil. This book was written by the first openly black cartoonist to be syndicated in white newspapers in the U.S. We believe that this important piece of comic strip history was given as a gift to cartoonist C.D. Russell who was identified as an influence on Campbell in his obituary and his bride Mary in 1945. The blank pages in the front and back of the book have been signed along with sketches by some of the earliest members of the National Cartoonists Society Milton Caniff Jay Irving Otto Soglow George McManus Bela Zaboly Paul Frehm Gus Edson Dow Walling Bill Holman Ed Hughes and Elmer Woggon. In addition there are signatures from Dick Tregaskis author of 34Guadalcanal Diary34 George Girot comedian Sam Moore radio comedy writer Jean Tighe actress and singer who founded Veterans Bedside Network in 1948 Ray Clark country singer known as 34Yodelin Slim Clark34 Bob Christy actor Ken McCaleb movie critic for the New York Mirror and Irving Moss partner in talent agency - Moss and Mendez. There are five more signatures which are either unreadable or the person cant be positively identified as a celebrity. More photos available upon request.
