The Society of Professional Journalists recently held their regional conference at Ohio State on April 4th, and invited Jeff to give the Keynote address. The event took place at the Billy Ireland Museum, in the Jean and Charles Schulz Lecture Hall, where Jeff engaged the audience (Conference attendees, Educators and Journalism students) on the merits and similarities of cartooning and journalism. Introduced by his mentor, and respected former museum curator, Lucy Caswell, the conference ended with an enthusiastic start to the weekend! The Regional Chapter posted some additional photos on their Facebook page, which you can find here
As a ‘thank you’ for the evenings festivities, the Conference gifted Lucy and Jeff with bricks from the over 100 year old original Journalism Building! There are only a few of these left, which makes them all the more treasured.
