Garry Trudeau is an American cartoonist and creator of the topical satire “Doonesbury.” Born in New York City in 1948, Garry was artistically inclined as a child. While in high school, Garry was co-editor of the yearbook, president of the Art Association, and winner of the Senior art prize. Garry began creating comic strips in 1966 while attending Yale. The comic strip “Bull Tales,” which eventually was renamed “Doonesbury,” was first printed in the “Yale Daily News.” Trudeau became the first cartoonist to ever win a Pulitzer.
