I’d like to add to the “Remembering Henry Martin ’48” item in the October issue.
In conjunction with his 50th reunion in 1998, Henry Martin ’48 — a member of my grandfather class — held an exhibition of his cartoons at Firestone Library where I had the privilege of meeting him in person. The meeting was arranged by the late Dean Marianne Waterbury, my mentor in the International Students Association of Princeton (ISAP). Since I was the outgoing editorial cartoonist at The Daily Princetonian (1996-98) and the outgoing president of ISAP, Dean Waterbury coordinated with Henry to present me with a montage of Henry’s Princeton-themed cartoons as a fabulous graduation gift. The other side of the montage contains farewell messages from international students. The cartoon montage is a wonderful homage to Princeton and has been proudly displayed on my wall since graduation:

After a long hiatus, I resumed drawing editorial cartoons in 2017. My work can be found on my independent editorial cartoon website, sillyreality.com.
