Another Batchelor anti-VD cartoon

Reeve 85182-24

Here's another CD Batchelor cartoon from World War 2 on the dangers of venereal disease from the collection of the National Museum of Health and Medicine. You can see earlier posts on Batchelor here and here.

This photo of a poster is by Lynn Brudon also from World War 2. I don't know anything else about him or the poster.

Lynn Brudon was the father of William Lee Brudon, an illustrator and photographer. Bill told me many colorful stories about his father, including one about Lyndon B. Johnson sending over a secret service person to pick him up so that LBJ could tell him how much he loved his political cartoons, even the ones slamming him about Vietnam. Lynn Brudon was also a photographer for the Chicago Tribune in the 1930s, so far as I can remember from what Bill told me. Bill also showed me a bunch of original cartoons that his dad did during WWII. They were great in color, and full-size. I wish Bill could tell you more, but he passed away in July 2009. I bought the house in Ann Arbor that he lived in for about 30 years, before he moved to Chelsea, MI in 2002.

According to Syracuse's Jim Ivey collection, Brudon was with the Orlando Sentinel - http://library.syr.edu/digital/guides/i/ivey_j.htm

Lynn Brudon was my great grandfather. When my grandfather passed away, my father brought quite a few of his political cartoons and some photographs with him back to Florida.

Ms. Parsons, thank you for the comment. If you have scans of any of the cartoons, I'd be glad to post them here.
