The first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street is a good opportunity to celebrate the centennial year of the New Yorker cartoonist Syd Hoff (1912-2004), who drew over five hundred cartoons for the magazine. None of them had anything to do with Wall Street, so what’s that got to do with O.W.S.? Patience, please…

Syd Hoff also wrote Danny and the Dinosaur. As you’ll see if you read the profile, his leftist cartoons were pretty epic and you can read a ton of them here.
