Able to Leap Fenn Tower in a Single Bound!

Bill Becker, the CSU Archivist, just shared this document with me, which is a 1942 letter from the Dean of the School of Business at Fenn College, to the instructor of a drawing class, letting him know that Joseph Shuster, the illustrator of Superman comics, was enrolling in his class. He said:

Feb. 19, 1942
Mr. Hans Busch:

Yesterday I registered for the class in freehand drawing Mr. Joseph Shuster who is the artist who draws the SUPERMAN comic strip in our newspapers. I think you will probably find Mr. Shuster an interesting student and will be glad to work with him in terms of his individual needs and interests.

If you do not read SUPERMAN, please call at this office and I will introduce you to this particular branch of Literature.


[note, this is Dean Paul R. Anders]
