Al Feldstein at OSU

Al Feldstein, editor of MAD magazine for almost 30 years, made a return engagement to Columbus, Ohio to speak in the Grand Lounge of the Faculty Club on Sunday, May 1, 2005.

Lucy Caswell, curator of the cartoon Research Library at OSU, invited GLC members to have brunch with Al before his talk.

Following the speech, the group attended a reception in the library to celebrate the opening of "Humor in a Jugular Vein," an exhibit of MAD Magazine art from the collection of Mark Cohen and Rose marie McDaniel.

Ed Black will be providing a full report of the event in due time. But for now, let's just look at the pictures!

At the conclusion of brunch, Chapter chair Steve Boreman presented Al with a special faux Mad Magazine, filled with artwork by GLC members in tribute to him. It turner out pretty well. Get your own copy HERE.
