Ed Franklin, a political cartoonist with the Globe and Mail, the Houston Press, the Houston Post, and a freelancer with clients including The Saturday Evening Post, died recently according to a report at Sequential. According to that report, the Texas-born Franklin joined the staff of the Globe in 1968 and stayed there until retirement in 1987, the last 15 years at the paper's main cartoonist. His post-retirement clients included the Financial Post and Saturday Night. A memorial service is planned for today in Toronto.
