  • The Association of American Editorial Cartoonists remembers Etta Hulme

    Etta Hulme, cartoonist for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, died June 25th at the age of 90. A longtime member and former president, Etta was a widely respected and beloved member of the AAEC.

By Bob Krieger, 2 Oct 2013, TheTyee.ca Aside from being an incredibly kind, humble, hilarious, brilliant and elegant gentleman, Roy Peterson happened to be a world class editorial cartoonist.
