Ariail featured speaker at DAR luncheon
Cartoonist Robert Ariail discusses the history of editorial cartoons in America. Behind him is the first known printed cartoon in America, entitled Join or Die by Benjamin Franklin.
Robert Ariail has spent his career following a long and storied tradition of skewering those who would aspire to holier than thou status. An award winning, syndicated cartoonist who lives in Camden, Ariail recently spent a few minutes with the ladies of the Hobkirk Hill Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution talking about editorial cartoons and the pivotal role they have played in American history. The occasion, held at Springdale Hall March 12, was the Hobkirk Hill Chapter’s annual Scholarship Luncheon, a chapter fundraiser that provides scholarships for Kershaw County area students.
