Ivy League Home for a Cartoonist’s Vast Archive

Al Jaffee started out as a professional cartoonist in the early 1940s, and he has been at it ever since. Although best known for the three-panel fold-ins that Mad magazine has run since 1964, he has also produced work for Timely Comics, the forerunner of Marvel, for Playboy and Esquire, for the short-lived satirical magazine Humbug, and for The Moshiach Times, a Jewish family magazine that has carried his secret-agent strip “The Shpy” for the last 25 years.
