This 1942 cover of The New Yorker passed through Facebook and merits a repost here. It shows the outdated concept, that the whole family must indeed go sailing together, a concept common in mid 20th century sailing culture. The cover is a parody of family sailing, something that most likely escaped the general readership of The New Yorker at the time. For Dear Old Dad has decided this racing boat (most likely a Star) is the proper family boat, even though it is laid over on her ear and wife, and son, and daughter are stacked in vain as the lee rail is well awash. Dad is having a grand time. The others??
Eleven years ago, I wrote about this very same scenario from personal experience.
Over the years I have also sprinkled a series of Earwigoagin posts about sailing with Parents and Kids.
Can anyone tell me who the artist was on this cover?
Update August 1: From a comment from an anonymous reader; the artist was famed cartoonist Perry Barlow.
