Guest Book Highlights

September 17, 2014 "I was Editor-in-Chief of our high school newspaper, "The Crusader", and Tony was our cartoonist. He created a comic strip called "Tubs" and I was always amazed at how easily he drew the characters and gave them life. He was always excited, funny and cheerful when he was drawing." - Phil Acosta (Laguna Niguel, CA)

September 16, 2014 "On a Saturday in 1978-1979, Tony Auth spoke at my High School(Upper Merion). I was in charge of stage crew, so it was my duty to set up the PA system. I then had an opportunity to here Tony speak. He was a quite good speaker. He went though his live, how he trained as a medical illustrator, and end up as a cartoonist. After he was done he accidently left a cheap brown drinking glass at the podium. For 36 years I have kept this drinking glass as a souvenir of the one Pulitzer prize winner that I have met.
I went to college, grad school, and medical school. I even interned at Lankenau Hospital, in Wynnwood,PA. I am now an attending physician. But I have only met one Pulitzer prize winner.
I enjoyed his work greatly, and his sense of humor. One always can use a good laugh.
Tony touch a lot of people, may of which your family will never know. That day it including a kid working stage crew. We will all miss him. AMA"
