After graduating from Dartmouth College with honors in 1938 with a degree in English Literature, Howard attended the Chicago Institute of Fine Arts to pursue editorial cartooning, although he also painted, which is where his talent ultimately led him.
Here's an example of one of Howard's 1940 political cartoons.
“It Won’t Be Long Now!”
