Biography - Low, Sir David
(l ) (KEY) , 1891–1963, British cartoonist, b. New Zealand. In 1919 Low went to England, where he worked on the London Star (1919–27). Thereafter he successively joined the staff of the Evening Standard (1927–50), the Daily Herald (1950–53), and finally the Manchester Guardian (from 1953). At the Standard he became noted for his sharp and perceptive caricatures and cartoons on national and international affairs. He created “Colonel Blimp,” a caricature of the pompous British ultraconservative. Low’s cartoons have been collected in A Cartoon History of Our Times (1939), Low on the War (1941), Years of Wrath (1946), which covers the period from 1931 to 1945, and The Fearful Fifties (1960).
See his autobiography (1956).
