Don has sold a LOT of cartoons in his career. Each numbered cartoon or illustration on the left side of this Blog is from a DIFFERENT magazine, newspaper, etc. Let's see if we can find out the total number of publications (places) where Don's work has appeared . . . . . (An unnumbered posting is a duplicate publication.)

229. New Physician

This cartoon (redrawn here) is one of three Don sold in August 1969 to New Physician.
Today there is a magazine titled The New Physician, a publication of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA). This organization's website tells us it was founded in 1950, as the Student American Medical Association (SAMA), under the auspices of the American Medical Association (AMA). In the late 1960 the organization's objectives and philosophy changed and in 1967 SAMA cut ties with the AMA and became independent and student-governed.
So do you think the poor soul in Don's cartoon has a better chance of a handout from a new physician?
