Fascinating, well known and highly respected Mandarin resident, Ed Gamble, will be telling stories about some politicians he has met, including President Reagan, Governor Graham and Governor Crist and showing some of his cartoons related to local politics and political figures.
Gamble was an editorial cartoonist for The Florida Times-Union from 1980 until 2010. An award-winning cartoonist, he has been nationally syndicated and his cartoons have been published in newspapers and exhibits all over the United States and the world, including overseas in China and at the American Center in Karachi, Pakistan. They are permanently displayed at the Texas Depository in Dallas, Texas and at the Ford, Carter, Nixon, Reagan and Bush Presidential Libraries. He has won more than 50 national, regional and state awards for his cartoons, including four Wilbur Awards from the National Religion Communicators Council. Gamble was one of 15 cartoonists to be invited for a luncheon with President Reagan in the White House in 1986 and in the same year was invited to attend Pope John Paul's address to the nation's communication leaders in Los Angeles.
Ed Gamble is the author of "You Get Two For The Price of One" (Pelican 1996) with forwards written by Presidents Ford and Bush and a co-author of "A Cartoon History of the Reagan Years" (Regnery, 1988)
The images that will be shown at this lecture are from the
Special Collections at the Thomas G. Carpenter Library at University of North Florida, which houses over 2000 of Gamble's cartoons on local and state events.
