Profiled: Dick Locher and his amazing career
Bob Harvey profiles the career of Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist and Dick Tracy cartoonist Dick Locher.
Over the years, Locher reckons he’s had more than 10,000 cartoons published. “That’s a whole lot of getting mad six times a week,” he said. He has also racked up his share of awards and honors, including a Pulitzer in 1983. He had a private lunch in the Oval Office with President Ronald Reagan; and he created the coveted John Locher Award for college cartoonists to honor the memory of his deceased son, who once assisted him on Dick Tracy. And he paints and sculpts.
