Richard Yardley MapAllen Young
I do have the same map framed and displayed in my Yardley collectioon and it is by far my favorite. It is easy to date if you see the Galesville 300 year anniversary and the single span bridge across the Bay puts it at 1952.
I have found out a few other answers that are long ago asked on this forum, Moco was a nickname from a cartoons Yardlet admired that's main character was called "Eskimo"
he also did silhouettes, my firend has two from the Round Bay Summer Carnival in the 1960's he did as a giveaway. I just have to find the time to get a museum going!
We are in possession of a Yardley cartoon map of West Point from 1932. Would anyone know the approximate value and also if there is a biography on Yardley?

I have been collecting Yardley cartoon maps for many years and also a few of his cartoons, as well as,some pottery pieces and plates he did. I've not found a bio on Moco but his life certainly would make a great story.
I have a unpublished Yardley cartoon depicting President's Truman and Eisenhower seated before a grand piano. It is titled 'Perfect Harmony'. I am trying to find out any info regarding the value of such a unique work of art...
Apparently Mr. Yardley attended plays and concerts by the Young Women's International Group in the 1930's in Baltimore City. I have reconstructed a scrapbook which belonged to my mother-in-law (I found it in her attic when she died)and there are two lovely drawings by Mr. Yardley thanking the Russian Dance group for a beautiful evening.
His wife also was an artist and apparently drew the pictures on the brochures for the group.

Is there any published biography for Mr. Yardley?
Does anyone know if Yardley ever produced silhouettes? I have several American pieces that are signed "Yardley" and certainly seem to share a signature quite similar to that used on his cartoons. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Trying to find out connection between Mr. Yardley and Johns Hopkins Hospital. Also places to see examples of his work outside of the Baltiore Sun.
