A. Butler Comic

An Illustration from “The First Field Artillery Brigade Observer” by Alban B. Butler Jr.

The Arthur A. Schmon collection contains illustrations [from the First Field Artillery Brigade Observer]. These are very faded. The illustrator’s name is visible in some of the sketches. They are signed “Butler”. This is Captain Alban B. Butler, Jr., who was an aide-de-camp for Major General Charles Pelot Summerall in 1918.
