Virgil "VIP" Partch

(1916-1984)

Like Sam Cobean, Sidney Smith, and, more recently, Doug Marlette, Parch died in a car accident. He was fond of drawing people with extra fingers. More than any cartoonist I know of, Partch was liable to include original drawings in his various books.

I had a VERY difficult time locating a photo of the guy. I finally found one in The Cartoonists' Cookbook, of all places. Thank to Ellen Roubos for the image of Ludwig and the photo of Partch that appears in that book.
