History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

The Landon School of Cartooning, in Cleveland, was well-known cartooning correspondence course, and produced many illustrious graduates, such as Milton Caniff, Carl Barks, and Roy Crane. These materials belonged to Wayne A. Endy (1887-1961), a student in 1932-1933, from Reading PA, who does not appear to have become a professional.
