National Cartoonist Society Profile: Al Jaffee

I was born a long time ago in what is now known as Savannah, Georgia and it's been down hill ever since. I've tried many fields of cartooning and one of these days "I"ll get it right." I've done comic books, satire magazines, and a minor syndicated feature titled "Tall Tales". One day, in a fit of madness, Alfred E. Neuman invited me to join the "usual gang of idiots". In 1964 I created the "Mad Fold-In" which still appears (yeech!) as of this writing. I've been a member of the National Cartoonist Society since 1950 sponsored by Frank Fogarty, (one of the sweetest people I ever met) and Gill Fox (not as sweet but a great artist). The National Cartoonist Society has been a marvelous joyride.
