a little something that hangs on my wall; 70 years since. 22 cal whos who signatures around the March 1943 American Rifleman cartoon, drawn by James T. Berryman, then the Art Director for the American Rifleman Magazine, for presentation to Ed Dobscha, who was primarily responsible for ensuring the matches of 1946 at Camp Perry where held that year, after the end of WWII.



Prominent among the 65 or so match participants who signed the cartoon before it was presented to Dobscha were:

Thanks for the link Frank, it is great history.

This cartoon first appeared in the March 1943 American Rifleman magazine, then was re-purposed as a presentation to Mr. Dobscha.
