Memorable Manitobans: Arch Dale (1882-1962)

Artist and cartoonist.

Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, he began as a professional cartoonist at age 17, working on the Glasgow News and the London Comic Cuts and Funny Wonders. He came to Canada to homestead, but failed. He then joined the Manitoba Free Press. From 1921 to 1927 he worked in Chicago, but then he returned to the Free Press as staff cartoonist until his retirement in 1954. Dale’s best work was done during the Depression. He was particularly hard on R. B. Bennett and William Aberhart. He seldom satirized W. L. M. King, whom he much admired.
