John T. McCutcheon

The name of his friend, John T. McCutcheon, to some generations is synonymous with his famous “Injun Summer” drawing and text, evoking boyhood memories of curling smoke from bonfires in Hoosier corn fields. It first appeared in the Chicago Tribune in 1912 and continues today, each autumn. As featured cartoonist, McCutcheon was the first Tribune staff member to win a Pulitzer Prize. His artistry would prove to be invaluable to the Indiana Society of Chicago.
