Herbert Lawrence Block, commonly known as Herblock (October 13, 1909 - October 7, 2001), was an American editorial cartoonist and author best known for his commentary on national domestic and foreign policy from a liberal perspective. Block was born in Chicago to Jewish parents, David Julian Block, a chemist and electrical engineer, and Theresa Lupe Block. He started drawing at a precocious age, and started taking classes at the Art Institute of Chicago when he was eleven. He adopted the "Herblock" signature in high school. After graduating in 1927, he became a reporter for the Chicago City News Bureau and did freelance artwork. he attended Lake Forest College for two years, but then a summer job temporarily replacing the editorial page cartoonist for the mass-circulation Chicago Daily News became a permanent job; he backed up the paper's front page political cartoonist, Vaughn Shoemaker. Block moved to Cleveland in 1933 to become the staff cartoonist for Newspaper Enterprise Association, a feature syndicate that distributed his cartoons nationally.
