Clyde Lamb, who parlayed a 25-year sentence at the Indiana State Penitentiary into a successful career as a syndicated cartoonist, enters the Sunday field Nov. 2 with a one-third page full-color version of his “Herman” strip. The pantomime gag feature is distributed by the Register and Tribune Syndicate.
Mr. Lamb started the daily “Herman” strip three years ago, after his release from prison. He had begun drawing gag cartoons while serving time. The syndicate reports he is now “a highly respected citizen in his community, just as ‘Herman’ is a highly respected character on the pages of newspapers.”
