    I have a 1947 signed cartoon by Burt Thomas that was given to my father while he was an intern at Harper in Detroit. Do you have any info on Burt?

  2. Pete Waldmeir says:

    I have a signed and framed original drawing of a Sunday Editorial Page cartoon of Uncle Sam by Burt Thomas, drawn and published during the early World War II disagreement over the U. S. Selective Service draft. I came to work as a copy boy at The Detroit News right out of high school in January, 1949, and stayed for 54 years as a sportswriter and columnist and later as a general news columnist. Got to know him only briefly and can’t recall how I managed to obtain one of his original ink drawings. But it is genuine and comes with all the pre-publication markings and directions.

    I donated original ink drawings to Chicago newspaper. They opened a museum and used the drawings to display there. Burt Thomas inspired ” no kid without a christchristmas”or something to that matter. I couldn’t find out much about him either.
