Article on cartoons in early Hollywood published

When I first started researching Engineering Hollywood, I came across the cartoons of Glenn Kershner in his American Society of Cinematographers’ file. Though he worked as a cameramen through the silent and early sound eras, he was a man of many talents and known for his stories as much as his camerawork. His illustrations of the adventures on set began appearing in the pages of American Cinematographer in the late 1920s and later showed up in International Photographer as well. I found a few others in his ASC file that seem to have never been published. The cartoons are a fascinating window into life on set in the early days of Hollywood.
