See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

An exhibit of thirty colored anti-Axis paintings by Arthur Szyk, Polish-Jewish caricaturist, opened today in the Officers’ Club of the First Air Command at Mitchell Field on Long Island. Szyk considers his paintings “weapons” in this war, and has expressed the desire that they be used by American airmen.

Szyk recently succeeded Rollin Kirby as editorial cartoonist of the New York Post and his work has also appeared in the Chicago Sun, Esquire, Colliers, Time and other newspapers and magazines.
