CHON (CHAUNCEY ADDISON) DAY (1907-2000)

American cartoonist, born in Chatham, New Jersey, studied at Lehigh University in 1926, where he drew for the Burr, the school's humor magazine.  He left after one year.  In pursuit of further art training, he attended the Art Students League in New York City in 1929, studying under Boardman Robinson, George Bridgman, and John Sloan.  His cartoons, first published in 1929, have appeared in a long and impressive list of such magazines as The New Yorker, Judge, Look, The Saturday Evening Post, Playboy, Good Housekeeping, Ladies Home Journal, True, Film Fun, and This Week. 

He is noted as the creator of the cartoon Brother Sebastian, about which he has written and illustrated, including:  Brother Sebastian (1957), Brother Sebastian Carries On (1959) and Brother Sebastian at Large (1961). He died in Westerly, Rhode Island in 2000.  He had lived in Rhode Island since 1937.
