| No one mentioned Basil Wolverton last night.
b.1909, his bio
Actually John and I were discussing him at the other end of the table.
I collected those first Plops as a kid and was very impressed when my mother recognized the work of Wolverton. She told me that in the late 40's or early 50's Al Capp held a contest for the readers of Lil'Abner to draw the worlds ugliest woman, the winning entry was to be published in the strip. My mother sent in a drawing but Wolverton won. She conceeded that his entry was far uglier.
