New York by Herb Roth

Herb Roth was an American cartoonist, who mostly worked for books and magazines. His work appeared in The New York Herald Tribune, New York World and several literary periodicals. From 12 January to 23 March 1913 he had a feature called 'Oh, That New York! What It Doesn't Do To You!' in the New York World's Sunday Metropolitan section. He was a longtime assistant and ghost artist for H.T. Webster on his daily cartoons and the feature 'The Timid Soul' (1931-1953).

Roth was also hired to draw a Sunday comic feature starring Paul Terry's 'Mighty Mouse' in 1947, but it is unlikely that these rather off model comics ever actually went into syndication. Roth and Terry were obviously friends; Terry acted as best man for Roth on his wedding in 1922 (according to the New York Evening World on 13 July 1922).
