Title: Bill Gaines obit
: Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Date: June 6, 1992
About this cartoon: The founder of Mad magazine might not have been well known to the public, but his creation influenced generations of young people, including myself.
Noteworthy: This cartoon sort of led to my becoming a Mad contributor. I'd had contact with Mad a few years earlier, was told they were seeking writers, not cartoonists, and I gave up quickly, not considering myself a writer, After this cartoon came out, I mailed it to their office with a note saying "you probably don't remember me" and got a reply of "sure we do, and please try writing for us again." i submitted several proposals, they bought one and asked me to draw it too, and I began a modest series of contributions to the magazine as a writer and cartoonist.
