I'm curious about the value of this collection. There's 270 drawings, mostly submitted to Boy Scout magazines I believe. The most known artist is Morris Turner. These drawings have the magazine's corrections on them (blue pencil) and the artist's names and addresses stamped on the backs.

The rest of the artists (with quantity) are
Martin Filchock 33
Harley Karnes 18
Stanley Stamaty 34
Al Kaufman 79
Bill Harrison 40
George Wolfe 31
Morris Turner 8
David Pascal 7
GEO Snowy Connolly 1
Unknown 5
Dick Ericson 4
Charles Wible 1
Alfred Isler 1
Dick Hodgins 3
Laughs Unlimited 2
Fennell 3
Betty Swords 1

If anybody knows more about who the other artists are I'd like to know.

    I think there is a market for this collection...my Dad, Bob Gustafson, was a professional cartoonist, and I remember him selling his work to magazines, sending in drawings like the above. He was friends with Dick Hodgins. Anyway, somewhere in the US there is a Museum of Cartoon Art. It used to be in Connecticut, but I heard a few years back it was moving to Ohio. I could be wrong, though.
    It appears to be a wonderful collection.
