BURRIS JENKINS, JR.
Autograph Sentiment signed with his cartoonist signature in 1946
Autograph Sentiment signed: "With best wishes/Burris Jenkins [large stylized JR] Dec. 19, '46", 5½x6¾. American newspaper cartoonist Burris Jenkins, Jr. (1897-1966), the son of prominent Kansas City minister, war correspondent and newspaper editor Burris Jenkins, was a popular sports cartoonist, whose work appeared in the New York Journal-American from 1931. His humorous published verses were also popular. Although best known for his sports themes, Jenkins was also a skilled courtroom illustrator and editorial cartoonist. He was fired from his first job at the Kansas City Post for a series of pessimistic Christmas cartoons, a firing which prompted his father's resignation from the same newspaper. Among his best remembered cartoons are his angry piece on the discovery of the dead Lindbergh baby, and his sentimental image of Babe Ruth's farewell to Yankee Stadium. Jenkins was a training pilot in France during World War I. Paper and adhesive residue (previous mounting) on verso, light show-through at top edge. 2 horizontal fold creases, not affecting signature. Evenly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
