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.
