Etta Hulme, a longtime Star-Telegram editorial cartoonist who rose to national prominence with her understated drawing style and liberal-leaning wit, died Wednesday at her Arlington home.
Mrs. Hulme, who had been in poor health in recent years, was 90.
She was one of the few women ever hired as a full-time newspaper editorial cartoonist.
Twice, in 1982 and 1998, she was named best editorial cartoonist by the National Cartoonist Society. And she was elected president of the American Association of Editorial Cartoonists.
Read the rest of the obit to get a sense of her incredible life and career.
I met Etta a couple of times at AAEC conventions. I always say cartoonists are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Etta has to be in the top five. Ever.
My condolences to her family and friends.
Here’s video of Etta in a documentary about her work.
