On this day in 1907 Milton Caniff was born. Caniff is best known, of course, for Terry and the Pirates and Steve Canyon (featured a while back in Friday’s the Flying Flick). Caniff was an Eagle Scout and received an Eagle Scout award from the Boy Scouts of America. Maybe the Boy Scouts didn’t know about Milt’s drawings that are in my new book “Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings”.
