Arthur B. Poinier (1910-98)

While still a student at Ohio Wesleyan University, Arthur B. Poinier began to draw sports cartoons for the Columbus Dispatch before signing on as an editorial cartoonist for the Des Moines Register Tribune. A past president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC), Poinier in 1951 joined the Detroit News, which in the course of his twenty-five years of service, published seventy-five hundred of his editorial cartoons. Poinier donated more than twenty-four hundred cartoons produced between 1952 and 1968 to the Special Collections Research Center.
