Jim Lange’s son pens biography of father

Editorial cartoonist Jim Lange spent 58 years at The Oklahoman. He passed away in 2009. His son, Robert, has written a book about his father called “John Q: The Life and Times of Jim Lange“.

From the Oklahoman:

?My dad passed away about four years ago,? the author said. ?I’d thought to myself over the years that I should do a book about him someday. Then a friend suggested the same thing. I said, ?You’re right. He needs to be remembered.’?

The book’s title refers to John Q. Public, a round-headed, fedora-wearing cartoon character with big eyes and prominent ears. The character appeared in much of Jim Lange’s work.
