Bandel Linn was a cartoonist from Crawfordsville, Indiana who, after graduating from high school in 1928, went on to attend Wabash College. He moved to Sarasota from New York City in 1939 and, during World War II, was a corporal in the Army Air Corps.
Over the years, his artistic works were featured in such well-known national magazines as Collier’s, Saturday Evening Post, Business News, Cosmopolitan, and Country Gentleman, as well as newspapers. He also applied his skills to animation for television cartoons. His sense of humor made him a favorite on the radio, too. His show, “At Home with Bandel Linn,” was heard weekday mornings on Sarasota CBS affiliate WSPB beginning in 1951.
Linn passed away in 1988 at a nursing home in Pensacola (FL) at the age of 76.
