The NBC Radio reporter signs a humorous printed cartoon by C.K. Berryman.
Cartoon signed: "Earl Godwin", 5x5½, affixed to a 5x6¼ sheet (2 surfaces). Printed cartoon by C.K. Berryman, showing a bear carrying a poster for Earl Godwin's NBC radio news show The World Today. Reporter EARL GODWIN worked for the Washington Times and covered Washington, D. C. for NBC's Blue Network in the 1940s. Godwin also replaced William J. Cameron as "The Voice of Ford" and hosted a 15-minute Ford-sponsored news program called Watch the World Go By with Earl Godwin. Henry Ford reportedly picked Godwin personally for his raspy drawl. President Franklin Roosevelt called him "the Earl of Godwin." During the TV era, he co-hosted the show Meet the Veep in 1953. Clifford K. Berryman (1889-1949) drew cartoons for the Washington Post and then the Washington Star for nearly 60 years (1891-1949). His use of a bear in this cartoon is noteworthy, because Berryman's cartoon of President Theodore Roosevelt declining to shoot a bear cub on a hunting trip inspired the term (and toy) "Teddy Bear." Lightly toned. Adhesive residue on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
