Milton Caniff: 1940s American Cartoonist

Attached is a profile of Milton Caniff (1907 1988), who is remembered as the creator of Terry and the Pirates (1934 - 1946), Mail Call (1942 - 1946) and Steve Canyon (1946 - 1988).

This profile first appeared in a U.S. military newspaper in place of his remarkably popular strip, Mail Call, which was created to amuse the far-flung American G.I.s and tantalize them with unwholesome drawings of saucy, street-wise, yet scantily clad women. Throughout the Forties, Caniff continued to work simultaneously on two syndicated comic strips while illustrating numerous pamphlets for the Army; he was fanatical about drawing every military detail correctly, knowing too

Discovered: The Tomb of King Tutankhamun (Literary Digest, 1923)

One of the first American magazine articles heralding the November 4, 1922 discovery of the ancient tomb of King Tutankhamen (1341 BC 1323 BC) by the British archaeologist Howard Carter (1874 1939); who was in this article, erroneously sited as an American:

"What is thought may prove the greatest archeological discovery of all time has recently been made in Egypt, in the Valley of the Kings, near Luxor. Two chambers of a tomb have been found filled with the funeral paraphernalia of the Egyptian King Tutankhamen, and hopes are entertained that the third chamber, yet unopened, may contain the royal mummy itself."

Andrew Mellon's Gift (Art Digest, 1937)

A 1937 news column announced the very generous gift to Washington, D.C. and the nation made by billionaire philanthropist Andrew W. Mellon (1855 1937): The National Gallery of Art:

"A long, low, classic structure, tailored in lines that harmonize with the neighboring white Beaux-Arts buildings, will house the new National Gallery made possible for the nation's capital by Andrew W. Mellon. The plans, designed by John Russell Pope have already been accepted by the Fine Arts Commission and construction... will get underway as soon as congressional authorization is made... The cost of the building, which will be borne entirely by Mr. Mellon, is estimated at $9,000,000."

(The cost was actually $10,000,000)

Isaac N. Lewis and the Lewis Machine Gun (1912)

A 1912 magazine article concerns machine gun inventor Isaac N. Lewis and his machine gun, the Lewis gun. The Lewis Gun played a major roll during the First World War, having been purchased in large quantities by the British/Commonwealth armies. Written just two years prior to the slaughter, this article is about U.S. Army experiments with the Lewis Gun when it is mounted on aircraft. As the article makes clear, the Lewis Gun was the first machine gun to have ever been fixed to a plane.


Civil War Reunion Clothing (Confederate Veteran Magazine, 1922)

What did the smart, re-constructed Confederate soldier wear to the reunions, you ask? Why an eight buttoned sack coat with matching trousers composed of Dixie Gray wool, of course! It was all the rage among the apple-sauce crowd of 1922 - and by clicking the link below you will see a black and white ad from "Confederate Veteran Magazine" which pictured the togs.
