Ed Arno 1916-2008

"It is my sad duty to report that as of this date your company still has not been subject to a takeover attempt."

Above: a cartoon by Ed Arno from the Harvard Business Review.

Cartoonist Ed Arno, a long time New Yorker contributor, passed away on May 27, 2008. He was 92.

As of this time, I have only heard that the cause of death is old age. Ed lived alone, and news was slow to travel to the New Yorker and the New York Times.

Michael Maslin, who was kind enough to send along an email and let me know this sad news, has a lovely write up about Mr. Arno here.

If anyone has more information, please pass it along if you are able. Thanks.
