Alfred E. Neuman's grandpa
I love this portrait of an Alfred E. Neuman ancestor from 1908. From Fantagraphics Books' Flog!:
Comics historian Craig Yoe will present a multimedia presentation on the history of "The What Me Worry Kid" at the Yorktown Museum 1974 Commerce St. Yorktown Heights, NY on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25 at 7:00 pm. This talk will take a fun look at the history of America's favorite grinning idiot without a care (not to be confused with America's *least* favorite grinning idiot without a care, George W. Bush). Yoe recently authored the book MODERN ARF, where the origin of Mad's mascot was one of those revelations covered in graphic detail.
