Who was C. D. Batchelor?
Batchelor's journalistic career began in 1911 as a staff artist for the Kansas City Star. From 1914 to 1918 he worked as a free-lance artist, returning to newspapers in 1923 when he worked as a cartoonist in the New York Post for the Ledger Syndicate until 1931. He then found his permanent niche at the New York Daily News, where he worked until 1969. Batchelor's most famous editorial cartoon, which reflected the newspaper's isolationist stance and won him the Pulitzer Prize for 1937, depicted a prototypical "Any European Youth" greeted by a skull-faced harlot representing War, and captioned, "Come on in, I'll treat you right! I used to know your Daddy." Sympathetic to women's suffrage, he also contributed cartoons to the Women's Journal and the Woman Voter. He also contributed his art to the causes of public health and public safety.
