Milton Caniff (1907-1988) was one of the founders of the National Cartoonist Society and served two terms as its President, 1948 and 1949. He also received the Society’s first Cartoonist of the Year Award in 1947, nominally for his new comic strip, Steve Canyon, but since the award covered work published in 1946, it embraced Terry and the Pirates as well. Caniff would be named Cartoonist of the Year again, receiving the accompanying trophy, the Reuben, in 1972 for 1971, again for Steve Canyon. He was also named to the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1988. He received the National Cartoonist Society Elzie Segar Award in 1971, the Award for Story Comic Strip in 1979 for Steve Canyon, the Gold Key Award (the Society’s Hall of Fame) in 1981, and NCS has since named the Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award in his honor. Caniff died in New York City.
