Martin worked as a cartoonist and illustrator for more than 50 years, publishing in The New Yorker, Punch, Ladies' Home Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, the Princeton Alumni Weekly and many other magazines. His single-panel comic strip, "Good News/Bad News," was nationally syndicated, and he wrote and/or illustrated more than 35 books. He retired in 1995. Martin had his first drawing -- known as a "spot" -- accepted at The New Yorker in April 1950, but it was another 14 years before his first cartoon was accepted there. The drawing for that cartoon, published on Aug. 15, 1964, is part of the gift. Also included is the first cartoon he published in The Saturday Evening Post on Jan. 4, 1965. The largest group of cartoons received by the library -- 570 drawings dating from 1976 to 1989 -- appeared in the London comic magazine Punch. Nearly 100 drawings for The New Yorker and The Saturday Evening Post are also in the collection.
