News of Yore 1914: Clare Briggs Defects to the New York Tribune
The New York Tribune scored a major coup when they lured Clare Briggs away from the Chicago Tribune, and they crowed about it more than a little on this page that appeared on February 8, 1914.
An interesting footnote to Briggs' defection: though he moved to the New York Tribune in 1914, I guess he must have been contractually obligated to the Chicago Tribune in some way, as I believe his cartoons continued to be syndicated by them until 1919.
