Jack Ohman of the Sacramento Bee was honored with this year’s Pulitzer Prize in editorial cartooning this week. See Ohman’s complete winning entry at http://www.sacbee.com/opinion/editorial-cartoons/jack-ohman/
William Hamilton, a longtime New Yorker cartoonist who lived in Lexington and was killed Friday in a car accident, was many things. Educated and worldly, he was a very funny guy, sophisticated, observant and wry, a confident and devil-may-care wit, the type who punctured the tedium of stuffy parties in precisely the manner they deserved. A commanding figure at 6-foot-5, charming, dapper and handsome, he was one of the giants of New York cartooning in the heyday, when Charles Addams, Peter Arno, Jules Feiffer, Al Hirschfeld and so many more were the toasts of the town.
