Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Lichty (May 16, 1905, Chicago, Illinois - July 18, 1983, Santa Rosa, California) was an American cartoonist, creator of the daily and Sunday cartoon series Grin and Bear It. His work was signed Lichty and often ran without mention of his first name. Born George Maurice Lichtenstein to Julius and Ella Hirsh Lichtenstein, Lichty was 16 years old when he launched his art career by selling his first cartoon to Judge. He attended the Chicago Art Institute (1924-25) and was the editor of the University of Michigan's humor magazine, The Gargoyle. Graduating from the University of Michigan in 1929, he began his newspaper career doing spot cartoons and sports drawings for the Chicago Daily Times. Lichty and Eleanor Louise Fretter married on January 5, 1931. After he created his Grin and Bear It series in 1932, it was syndicated by Field Enterprises in Chicago. Lichty also contributed to Collier's during the 1930s.show more
