Obscurity of the Day: Professor Prestochange
Hello, Allan---The artist was Charles J. Howard, who's main claim to fame was the creator of the comic, or "Vinegar" Valentine in the 1870's. He drew hundreds of these for McLaughlin Bros. printers in Brooklyn, for more than thirty years. ---Cole Johnson.
