Syd Hoff in College Humor, August 1937

In the August 1937 issue of College Humor, cartoonist Syd Hoff takes a look at intimate relationships in young and not-so-young couples.

Note:  I remain indebted to Dick Buchanan for providing us with these two gorgeous scans from College Humor. It's no secret that his work outshines any of my own clumsy photographs of the magazine presented here over the last few days. Dick maintains the legendary Dick Buchanan Cartoon Clip Files and he contributes regularly to Mike Lynch Cartoons, most recently a post entitled, "From the Dick Buchanan Files: William Steig Gag Cartoons 1946 - 1965." Dick's efforts have kept a great many classic cartoon gags in public  view.

Syd Hoff's work remains of great interest here at Attempted Bloggery. I am always eager to see readers' scans or photos of original art by the artist as well as rare published gag cartoons, illustrations, and advertisements.
