Salvation Army Santa: Leonard Weisgard Proposed New Yorker Cover Art

Leonard Weisgard illustrated over 200 children's books but he illustrated only two covers for the New Yorker, both in the late 1930's. This proposed New Yorker cover, Salvation Army Santa, reportedly dating from the 1940's, didn't make the cut.
