Before Schulz, there was Morris Weiss

At age 90, Morris Weiss, who did the ‘Mickey Finn‘ feature from 1968 to 1976,  is a living link to a generation of cartoonists that have faded into history. 

The West Palm Beach resident is 90, tall, slender, white-haired, soft-voiced. Married for 61 years to wife Blanche, with four kids, he offers up many rich memories of newspaper cartooning.

“I’ve had a very interesting life,” he says, and he is not being immodest. “I wonder if there’s anyone alive who has met as many of the great cartoonists as I have ? Charles Dana Gibson, Winsor McCay, James Montgomery Flagg?”
