Bob Grossman, '61, will be featured speaker at The Yale Club of New York City. There will be a wine and cheese reception at 6:30 and the lecture will begin at 7:00. Bob was Chairman of The Yale Record in 1961, filling its pages with hilarious cartoons. He went on to be among the foremost political caricaturists of the high and mighty, and always a loyal proponent of The Record. You have seen his inimitable style in The New York Times, The Nation, The New Yorker, The New York Observer, Rolling Stone and many other publications. And if you have not caught his websiteO-manland about a personage very much like our current President, you have a treat awaiting.
Bob will talk about accepts and rejects of his pen and ink work and back stories to some of his numerous icons including the airplane tied in a knot for the 1980 film AIRPLANE!. Given some prompting, he may also tell of his advocacy to Save The Vegetables from humiliations such as potatoes having their eyes removed in mess halls across the world before being put in boiling waters. Be ready to laugh.
