Hello. I came across your page while trying to research a Life Magazine cover from March 13, 1931. It was drawn by C.W. Anderson. The signature of this Anderson is the same as on your "And So to Bed" cartoon. But I cannot find an image of this issue's cover online anywhere so far. And I'd be happy to scan the cover in for your viewing. I'm an antique dealer, and I'm reluctant to sell this magazine until I know more about the issue and/or the cartoonist. Thanks for any help you can give me!

Andy, as we knew him was a long time friend of my Father's. He visited us often in Pleasantville, NY and while there one time drew a picture of a tree on the golf course and it forever changed his style. He was indeed author of "And So To Bed" and did risque cartoons for Esquire. He and my Dad knew each other in NYC when they were students and they became lifelong friends. We often visited he and Madeline in Mason, NH at their home and he gave me riding lessons on his horse "Joker". My father, who loved horses, introduced him to a Colonel Marshall who was an expert horsemen and thus began his real career and passion. Madeline preceeded him in death and he died heartsick, shortly afterwards. We had a wonderful portrait of Colonel Marshall that Andy had done and after my Father died we sent it on to his step-son Charles Ruckstuhl.
Check out a website concerning "Charles Ruckstuhl" who was CW Andersons step son. He indicates that the famous horse illustrator also did cartoons for the New yorker magazine. I have 5 charcoals of AERIES OF PICTURES DONE FOR THE nEW yORKER WHICH DEPICT A LITTLE GOAT IN ALL SORTS OF nEW YORK SITUATIONS.
The signature, C.W.ANDERSON, IS THE SAME AS THE 'AND SO TO BED' CARTOON--It seems to me that the Anderson that is well known for his horse drawings, is not the same guy--also, the theme of my picture and the one you have posted are very 'bed' focused, leading me to believe that my picture is by THAT C.W.Anderson--Thank you to Debra for her input--also, the styles of these two artists are in no way connected--there has to be TWO Andersons!!(the plot thickens!)
Found a little more online about Anderso. See:
C. W. (Clarence William) Anderson, unless there are more than one, was a prolific illustrator/author of children's and young adults books on horses. Famous for his incredible graphite drawings and etchings of horses, Anderson published in series and delighted horse lovers over many generations.
Anyone have any information for Merva?
I have an original, signed 20x27 drawing in charcoal that he did for the New Yorker magazine--Approx. 1930's--It is framed--The subjects are a man and women, fully dressed, lying on a bed in a hotel room--cocktail glasses and champagne bottle empty and the caption is 'I don't know why I'm telling you all this.'--have you any information ?
Thank you and would love to know more about him.
