50 Years Ago This Week: Here’s the line-up of cartoonists in The New Yorker’s issue of August 14, 1971:
When I look at that list (all males…no female cartoonists were being published by the magazine at that time), Alan Dunn’s name pops right out. By 1971 he’d been contributing to The New Yorker for 45 years (his first drawing appeared in the issue of August 7, 1926). He still had three more years to go (his last drawing appeared in the issue of September 16, 1974). of His grand total of work contributed: 1981 cartoons, and 9 covers. Long considered the most prolific of New Yorker cartoonists, he was eclipsed by William Steig, who’s career at the magazine lasted seventy years. James Stevenson’s entire body of work for The New Yorker (cartoons, writing, covers) puts him in another category). Another note of interest concerning that 1971 group: the great cartoonist Edward Frascino, is now in his 55th year of contributing to the magazine. 
Mr. Dunn’s entry on the Spill‘s A-Z:
Alan Dunn (self portrait above from Meet the Artist) Born in Belmar, New Jersey, August 11, 1900, died in New York City, 1975. New Yorker work: 1926 – 1974 Key collections: Rejections (Knopf, 1931), Who’s Paying For This Cab? (Simon & Schuster, 1945), A Portfolio of Social Cartoons ( Simon & Schuster, 1968). One of the most published New Yorker cartoonists (1,906 cartoons) , Mr. Dunn was married to Mary Petty — together they lived and worked at 12 East 88th Street, where, according to the NYTs, Alan worked “seated in a small chair at a card table, drawing in charcoal and grease pencil.”
