NCS 1970

Bill Peckmann was digging through his files last week and found this poster from the National Cartoonist Society, dated 1970. So many, and many not so, familiar faces.
Can you find your favourite cartoonists?

PS. Make sure that you don't miss the great, great Rowland B Wilson artwork Bill is sharing over at Michael Sporns Splog! Just click HERE!
Update: More Wilson artwork has been added. Click HERE to find a great set of roughs for TV Guide.

I am fortunate to have that poster as well. So many great names! They were originally collected to be the cover of an NCS album, which I also have. Why they decided to print it on pale red paper I don't know!

Where is Carl Barks???

I guess Carl Barks wasn't a member of NCS.

Great! I wanted to be a cartoonist when I was a kid, and now I remember why. So many great craftsmen, I guess they don't make them like that anymore. Look at Rube Goldberg and Paul Terry, every line is a stroke of genius.

@MikeLynch: please, could you tell us which is the year of the NCS Album your talking about? Are you sure that all the caricature are present in the cover of the album? The poster seems to be really big, seems strange that all of it is in the cover of the Annual Album... unless they are really reduced in size. Thanks.
