My uncle, Samuel V. Sanger, born 1899 in Pittsburgh, studied cartooning with Billy DeBeck, whether in person or via the correspondence course I don't know--probably the latter. A few years ago, forgetting the name of the artist behind "Barney Google" I unthinkingly googled "Google." What google immediately sent me to was Billy DeBeck. I thought, how weird that I had googled "google."
