Peard Sutherland (1902-1954)

Vancouver collector Peard Sutherland (see biography HERE) became a cartoonist at a young age. Most of the following were published when he was only 15. They appeared in the Canadian Courier, United Briefs, Toronto Globe, and Toronto Star Weekly. One cartoon appeared in American Boy. Thanks to Glinda and Rill Sutherland.

The Sutherland library contained a notable collection of English and French literature, philosophy, poetry, nature, mythology and art history. He had a notable collection of juvenile fiction featuring a complete set of the Oz books and Henty’s historical boys fiction. He had a special love of British story papers and annuals that were his passion as a boy.

Thanks indeed for the Peard Sutherland feature. The cartoons look excellent, but I do wish they could be enlarged so the wording might be easily read. Some lovely life photos there as well.

And though it's been years since your post, belated thanks for your piece on Ted McCall and Robin Hood and Company. 3 of his books up on the Digital Comic Museum, but look forward to more of his work being scanned in the future.
