Giles: his Life Times and Cartoons
Lecturer: Barry Venning
The cartoonist, Carl Giles, once said that he loved his creation, Grandma Giles, because she allowed him to say things through his cartoons that he was too polite to say in person. Few people realise, however, that this likeable and humane satirist was also a war correspondent. In that role he gave us a remarkable picture
of a half-century of British life.
