And one of my favorite guys illustrating pulps Edd Cartier. Pulpartists says he went to Pratt and studied under Harold Scott ( who influenced a lot of pulp artists and was a very prolific one himself) and William James ( who was an art director at Street and Smith) gave him his start at S and S. He went on to do over 800 illo's for The Shadow mag.
Possibly some of the most excellent reading you can get in a pulp magazine, plus some of the better pulp drawings in one mag. You really got you 20 cents worth of entertainment back in the day! You can't exactly end without mentioning John Campbell the editor who made it all happen, and had a real lively letters section too! Wonderful stuff!
