The Roy Grove Cartoon Collection

Collage of Grove Cartoon Creations

From 1917 through the mid-1920s, Roy Grove was a cartoonist with the Newspaper Enterprise Association (NEA), one of the first newspaper syndicates. During World War I he traveled to Great Britain, France, Switzerland and Italy, supplying the NEA with cartoons and art, many appearing in The Cleveland Press. Read more about Roy Grove.

The Roy Grove Cartoon Collection contains some of Grove's World War I cartoons, as well as some of his sports cartoons. The collection was donated to Cleveland State University Library Special Collections Department by the Gardner Family, neighbors to the Grove family in Cleveland Heights.
