Steve Kelley ’81, of The Times-Picayune in New Orleans, has received the Scripps Howard National Award for Editorial Cartooning for 2007. Kelley returned to Dartmouth recently as a Montgomery Fellow. His visit included a public lecture, “Art Irritates Life: Politics and Stuff People Actually Care About,” which he gave on Feb. 19 as part of the series, America in 2008: Commentators and Cartoonists. The award, presented by the Scripps Howard Foundation, credits Kelley’s “ability to weave words and imagery” and “his use of irony to satirize some of the year’s headlines.”
