Edmund Duffy was born March 1, 1899 in Jersey City, New Jersey to a middle-class family.[1] Duffy made his name as an editorial cartoonist for The Baltimore Sun. He joined the paper in 1924 and received high praise from H. L. Mencken. He was among the first white cartoonists to attack the Ku Klux Klan and lynching.[2] He won the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning three times from 1931 to 1940.[3] He married Anne Elizabeth Rector, daughter of Enoch J. Rector.[4][5]


Dufy began his career as a professional cartoonist in 1924. He worked as a cartoonist/reporter for the Baltimore Sun, along with famous writer H.L. Mencken, for over twenty years. During the twenty years with the Baltimore Sun, Duffy won three Pulitizer Prizes for his editorial cartoons in 1931, 1934, and 1940. Duffy's work is said to have been straight forward and easy to understand. In 1948, Duffy retired from the Baltimore Sun and began contributing his cartoons to the Saturday Evening Post.[6]
