The only date on the bottom one is, Wednesday, June 11, with no year. However, it could be 1924, because 11 June fell on a Wednesday in 1924. The original cartoons were donated by Eugene and Lucie Field to the Nappanee Indiana Historical Society museum and will appear in the display about Merrill Blosser. One interesting note is that Merrill uses a Mrs. Dunkleburger as a character in his cartoons. The first wife of Merrill's brother, Lowell, was Pearl Dunkleberger. Lowell was a photographer and lived in Warsaw, Kosciusko County, Indiana.</b></p> </tr> </table> <center> <center> <table align=center width=450> <tr width=450> <td width=450 align=center> <font face="verdana" size="2" color="gray"> <P> [<a href="index.html"><font color="gray">home</font></a>|<a href="blosserlinks.html"><font color="gray">blosser</font></a>|<a href="albumlinks.html"><font color="gray">album</font></a>] </td> </tr> </table> </p> </blockquote> </body> </html>
