Summary In the summer of 1925, The New Yorker was struggling to survive its first year in print. They took a chance on a young, indecorous cartoonist who was about to give up his career as an artist. His name was Peter Arno, and his witty social commentary, blush-inducing content, and compositional mastery brought a cosmopolitan edge to the magazine's pages' a vitality that would soon cement The New Yorker as one of the world' s most celebrated publications.
Subject Arno, Peter.
Cartoonists -- New York (State) -- New York -- Biography.
New Yorker (New York, N.Y. : 1925).
