Foundation Gives $150,000 to AAEC

The Herb Block Foundation created in the will of the late, legendary editorial cartoonist Herbert "Herbert" Block, recently made a substantial donation to The Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC) for educational outreach. The organization reports that its aims for the money include creating lesson plans that incorporates editorial cartoons, as well as a refurbished web site.

The news was no doubt welcome to the group, whose members have experienced a tumultuous year that has included some significant layoffs and relentless public criticism over the role of the newspaper cartoonist during an election campaign.
