Born in 1924, in Newark, NJ, Joe was a longtime Connecticut resident. In his early days he was a student of another Connecticut cartoonist, the great Richard Taylor. Joe contributed close to 300 cartoons to the magazine, including two covers. Collections of his work include Just A Cog In The Wheel, published in 1989, and UFO ? Ho Ho, published in 1968. His most recent book, A Soldier?s Sketchbook: From the Frontlines of World War II, was published in 2011 to excellent reviews.
Joe was a cartoonist?s cartoonist, able to deliver captionless cartoons, sometimes multi panelled, as well as cartoons of the moment, wrapping them up in a style that was his and his alone.
Condolences to his family and friends.
