Description

Bruce Alexander Russell (August 4, 1903 - December 18, 1963) was an American editorial cartoonist.

After studying at the Southern branch of the University of California, where he worked for the Cub Californian, he was hired for the Los Angeles Times as a sports cartoonist in 1927. He also drew a nationally syndicated cartoon, Rollo Rollingstone, during the early 1930s. In 1934 he became the lead cartoonist for the Times, a position he held until his death of a heart attack.

Russell won the annual Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning in 1946. His winning cartoon, entitled "Time to Bridge that Gulch," shows an American eagle and a Russian bear facing each other over a gulch filled with "irresponsible statements" and "deepening suspicions."
