Former AAEC president Jack Jurden passes at age 88

From The News Journal (Delaware):

Delaware’s best-known cartoonist, Jack Jurden, whose pen-and-ink drawings spanned more than six decades, has died at the age of 88.

The charming and quick-penned artist, who met and drew every president from Kennedy to Carter, died quietly at his Brandywine Hundred home Tuesday night, surrounded by family and friends.

Although he had physical problems in recent years, his sense of humor, graciousness and generous nature never diminished, his daughter Jan R. Jurden said Wednesday.

Jack was also a past president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists from 1976 to 1977.
