Howard W. Hewitt – One of the national’s top political cartoonists is on campus meeting with students, classes, and will give a public lecture tonight.
Daryl Cagle, political cartoonist for MSNBC, will speak at 8 p.m. in Baxter Hall. Besides his work for MSNBC he has a cartoon syndication business with close to 900 member newspapers.
Today Cagle met with Dr. David Hadley’s polticial cartooning class and with members of the student newspaper’s staff. Cagle spent nearly an hour with Dick Page ’07 and Patrick Millikan ’07. Page and Millikan both draw cartoons for the Bachelor.
Cagle joined 15 members of the Bachelor staff for lunch and engaged in a lively discussion about cartooning. He also quizzed the staff about Wabash College.
His interaction with students was entertaining and engaging. He noted political cartoonists look to stir people up. He encouraged the students to come to his evening presentation when he’ll review cartoons from throughout his career – and at least one to offend everyone!
