Al Hirshfeld, 99, Dies; He Drew Broadway

“To be the subject of a Hirschfeld drawing endowed one with a special cachet. To find the word ‘Nina,’ the name of his daughter, hidden several times in the lines of his caricatures, was a weekend pastime for millions of readers. Next to his signature he put the number of ‘Ninas’ in his drawings, creating a sort of pleasurable Sunday game for his admirers.” —Al Hirshfeld, 99, Dies; He Drew Broadway (NYTimes)
