Jerry Dowling mentioned in NY Times Article

Lost Occupation, Lost Art as Sports Cartooning Declines is an article in today's New York Times that mentions our own Jerry Dowling.  Though we have known Jerry has been lost for a while.

From the article.

There were others, of course: Leo O’Mealia, who preceded Gallo at The Daily News, and Bruce Stark, who was also at The News; Karl Hubenthal at The Los Angeles Examiner; John Pierotti of The New York Post and Thomas Paprocki of The New York Sun; Dick Dugan at The Cleveland Plain Dealer and Lou Darvas at The Cleveland Press; Jerry Dowling of The Cincinnati Enquirer; and Murray Olderman of the syndicated Newspaper Enterprise Association.

Long before the recent contraction in the newspaper industry, editors began to view sports cartoonists as vestiges of a bygone era and as budgetary luxuries.


  1. Wow! That's cool! Thanks for posting!

  2. Way to go, Jerry! Not many can say they were mentioned in The New York Times!
