Name of creator
John William D. (Jack) Boothe (1910-1973) was a cartoonist and writer for various Canadian newspapers. He was born in Winnipeg, and began drawing cartoons at the age of six. From 1930 to 1943 he worked as a cartoonist for The Province newspaper. He later worked for the Toronto Globe and Mail and the Hamilton Spectator, and then returned to The Province to do freelance work. While working for the Province, he illustrated local and provincial political events, and was the co-writer of the column "There and back with Monty and Jack." He received the national newspaper award in 1949, and received it again in 1953 for his coverage of the Korean War. During the Second World War, a booklet of his cartoons was published as a fundraiser for British relief.
