William Summers, Buffalo News (BIO INFORMATION NEEDED — IF YOU CAN PROVIDE, PLEASE WRITE TO ME)
There is some bio info on this page. It’s very basic. http://www.original-political-cartoon.com/cartoon-gallery/artists/summers-william-h-1897-1951/
This site: http://www.buffaloah.com/h/1913.html says: In 1951, Shanks, 43, former sports cartoonist at the Buffalo Times, will be named editorial cartoonist of the Buffalo Evening News, succeeding William H. Summers, who died Mar 17 1951.
And there’s a good deal of info about him and his family here: http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/ILFRANKL/2012-01/1326072381
Cartoonist William Summers was my great grandfather. My grandmother was just telling me all about him tonight, which is why I came across this inquiry. If you would like more information about him, please let me know. I’m sure his daughter would love to have it passed on. She said he was a great man and it was so sad that he died so young.
I have come into a huge collection of original cartoon drawings and cartoons that were taken out of the newspapers. Late 1930-1950. I would like to be connected with some who deals in history and would like to purchase.
