- A while back Tom Hachtman sent me a calendar illustrated by the sports cartoonist, Feg Murray.
Tom wrote: Here’s a “‘treasure’ I found in the basement today. They’re mildewed and have been through floods but they are still great art.”
Sorry I don’t have all twelve – there are golf lessons from Walter Hagen on the backs if you’re interested.”
The calendar dates back to 1930.
Not being the golfer, I wasn’t really interested in the lessons. Here are the extant calendar pages.
Here are some examples of the comic strips that Feg Murray had in syndication.
He was considered, primarily, a sports cartoonist, and this strip is a good example of what he did.
He also had a strip called “Seeing Stars” which focused on celebrities.’
Finally, here’s a Christmas card he did while working through King Features Syndicate.
