I received an email from Syd Hoff's niece, Carol Edmonston, yesterday. It reads like this:
I’m thrilled to let you know that www.SydHoff.org has just been updated and expanded in anticipation of Syd Hoff’s September 4th centennial. The site now includes a rich selection of his cartoons from a multitude of national publications – cartoons which still have relevance in today’s world. Other additions include many Ad Commissions, Mystery Short Stories he wrote, his life Time-Line, and a Kids Page featuring the “how to’s” of cartooning using letters and numbers. It also includes a new section dedicated to cartoons he drew under his alias, A. Redfield, for left-wing publications during the 1930s, along with a PDF down-loadable chapter- “Syd Hoff – A.Redfield…Two Sides of the Same Coin.”
It is my intention to honor Syd’s legacy by having this website become a ‘living’ book - easy to update and expand – and one that anyone can locate. Please pass the word along to others and help me celebrate one of our country’s most prolific cartoonists and beloved children’s authors.
Carol…. Syd’s niece
