Lee Lorenz: Cartoonist and Gatekeeper at The New Yorker

From a New York Times obit by Sam Roberts headlined “Lee Lorenz, 90, Cartoonist and Gatekeeper at The New Yorker, Dies”:

Lee Lorenz, a cartoonist and cartoon editor who over 40 years at The New Yorker introduced unconventional illustrators like Roz Chast and Jack Ziegler while publishing droll covers and some 1,800 cartoons in the magazine himself, died at his home in Norwalk, Conn.

Mr. Lorenz joined The New Yorker in 1958. He was its art editor — only the second one since the magazine was founded in 1925 — from 1973 to 1993 and its cartoon editor from 1973 to 1997.
