James A. (Jim) Rose
August 7, 1932 – January 24, 2020
Savannah political cartoonist and artist JIM ROSE passed on January 24, 2020. He was 87. His cartoon, “Phrogg,” ran in the Sunday edition of the Savannah Morning News for many years commenting on local and national news and events.
Phrogg apparently ran on the Savannah Morning News op-ed page during the 1970s and 1980s.
Phrogg was mentioned in an anniversary celebration of The Morning News:
Then there was Phrogg. Older readers may remember this cartoon strip. This affable amphibian, who was the creation of local artist Jim Rose, appeared on the Sunday op-ed pages in the 1970s and 1980s.
(Sorry, I haven’t been able to find any samples of Jim’s cartooning.)
