The Northeast Georgia History Center in Gainesville, Ga., is holding a 60th birthday party this Saturday for Mark Trail, the conservationist cartoon character.
“Mark Trail” was created in 1946 by Ed Dodd (1902-1991), a Georgia native who worked in Gainesville during part of his life. The comic is now done by Gainesville native Jack Elrod of King Features Syndicate.
The history center also has a “Mark Trail” gallery.
