E. Simms Campbell: A Mountie on a Mission

A Mountie returns from a mission on which he appears to have gotten sidetracked. E. Simms Campbell's 1941 Esquire gag attempts to relate instantaneously a complex interracial romance that has unfolded over several years.

"I didn't get my man, sir, but boy, have I got a lot to tell you!"
E. Simms Campbell
Esquire, February 1941

Note:  Attempted Bloggery always gets its man. This time our man is cartoonist E. Simms Campbell (1906-1971), whose extensive work we continue to survey. Readers are asked to submit high-resolution scans or photographs of outstanding original Campbell art or of long-forgotten published cartoons such as this one. 

We got our man all right, but we didn't get the page number in Esquire. Anyone who has it, please let us know so we can sleep at night.
