Steve Kelley to be Montgomery Fellow

Times-Picayune editorial cartoonist Steve Kelley will be one of three Montgomery Fellows at Dartmouth College this upcoming winter semester. This year’s fellowship program is entitled, “America in 2008: Commentators and Cartoonists” and will also include political correspondent Juan Williams and New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast.

Steve is returning to his old stomping grounds. He is a graduate of Dartmouth (1981) where he “served in student government, drew cartoons for The Dartmouth, co-founded the Dartmouth Review, and set the College’s indoor pole vault record.”

His fellowship runs February 18 – 22. He will speak on “Art Irritates Life: Politics and Stuff People Really Care About.”

And if you can’t make it to Dartmouth to sneak into one of Steve’s lectures, you CAN read his interview, and see some of his personal favorite ‘toons, in the premiere issue of “Stay Tooned! Magazine.”

Steve has one of the best post-modern styles and driest wits in the biz but…”indoor pole vault record”??? Indoor, outdoor doesn’t matter. I’m not sure whether to commend Steve or commit him. The act of running as fast as you can while carrying a pole, with the intent of shoving said pole in a box, leaving your feet (and senses) and then -what in the “sport” is called “loading the pole” is one of the single greatest acts of lunacy, suspensions of logic and self-preservation ever attempted by man. Sadly, I think I still hold a record or two -which explains a lot.

“The act of running as fast as you can while carrying a pole, with the intent of shoving said pole in a box…”

I am not Polish, but on behalf of all Polish-Americans, I am offended, sir!

Thatâ??s just great! Now Iâ??ve got this image of Steve Kelley, running as fast as he can while carrying Wiley Miller, and then attempting to poke Wileyâ??s hand in the sand.

I meant to type “head,” of course, not “hand.”

It would take more skill to stuff Wiley’s hand in the sand than his head.
