Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Sam Norkin, a caricaturist and illustrator who created more than 4,000 published drawings that captured moments in theater, dance, opera, jazz, pop and classical music over seven decades, has died. He was 94.
Publicist Lester Schecter says Norkin died Saturday in New York.
From 1940 to 1956, Norkin’s illustrations were featured in the New York Herald Tribune. During the next 26 years, he covered performing arts for the New York Daily News.
His art appeared in newspapers in cities where shows made their debuts, including The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Toronto Star.
He also was a member of the Drama Desk Board for more than 40 years and served as its president. An annual special award has been named in his memory.
