Gargoyle Reunion

One late October weekend I went to a University of Michigan Gargoyle Magazine reunion.

This was the 100th anniversary of the founding of the humor magazine so there were a couple of events a little more special than usual.

After doing lunch Friday at a restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor, we bussed to the Bently historical library on North Campus. John Dobbertin, Gargoyle editor in the 1960's gave a talk on campus humor from Custer's last stand to the Viet Nam war. I took a picture of Phil Zaret next to his famous cartoon, KILL A COMMIE FOR CHRIST.

We did some more campus touring and ended the day with the usual banquet. The was a silent auction where I won this cartoon by one of the current students (Reproduced with permission):

Hey Sailor! by Adrian Choy

Saturday was the day to make a current staff/alumni edition of the Gargoyle, the SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIAL. I had a great time meeting the students (and the alums) while we worked on a quickie one day Garg edition. I met Adrian Choy, the student artist of the HEY SAILOR cartoon, along with the other student staff members. I bought the pizza for lunch. (For some reason, college students seem to appreciate it when you buy them pizza.) All and all a good time.
