Bill Day honored by National Press Foundation

Bill Day, the former editorial cartoonist for Memphis Commercial Appeal, was honored by the Annual National Press Foundation Awards this last Wednesday. He received a Special Citation for “his work addressing the growing rate of infant mortality in the United States.”

“I was honored to join Bill, his wife Susan and their three sons last night as he was recognized by his peers for his media contributions,” Cohen said. “Whether it is shining a light on crime, poverty or the scourge of infant mortality, Bill’s artwork lives up to what he has called the theme of his work, the defense of the oppressed.”

Congratulations, Bill
