Albert “Muff” Mills, 1922-2007

imageAlbert Mills, a cartoonist for the Cambridge Times, died last Wednesday. He was 84.

Mills was known for both newspaper cartooning and for art painted onto airplanes during the Second World War. An example of Mills' "nose art" using the Li'l Abner character can be seen at right and read about here. Mills' work on airplanes was displayed in museums throughout England. A former member of the bomber command, during the war, his work would eventually appear both in Cambridge and as far away as Hong Kong. It's unclear as to their frequency: very little about Mills can be found through on-line searches.

Mills was buried in Cambridge on Friday.
