WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH SUTTON?
|One of the magazine covers from Sutton's own, Herbert Johnson|
Didja know that Sutton produced a national known political cartoonist?
Herbert Johnson was born in Sutton in 1878 and attended the University of Nebraska. Not sure where he went to high school - doesn't appear to have been here.
Don't believe me? Check out these two references. A little Googling will turn up some of his work.
|Herbert Johnson - Sutton kid to the Big Time in Philadelphia|
Johnson fit in well politically with the adamantly right-wing Post offering works in support of presidents Harding, Coolidge and Hoover. He was an unyielding critic of FDR and the New Deal.
Herbert Johnson died in Philadelphia in 1946 at the age of 68, barely outliving the object of his ire.
Another of Sutton's lost, but not (now, anyhow) forgotten native sons.
