Clyde Wells Death, Cause Of Death – Condolences to the family of longtime ‘Augusta Chronicle’ editorial cartoonist Clyde Wells who died at 87. Article reminds how local cartoonists can push for local change. The longtime Augusta Chronicle editorial cartoonist who used his deft pen and keen wit to render unwavering opinions from caustic to caring – died Monday morning at his home in Martinez. He was 87.

Wells submitted cartoons and more-detailed renderings of sports figures to newspapers and magazines, and in 1971 attracted the attention of The Chronicle’s editorial page editor, Louis Harris.

Persuading The Chronicle’s publisher, William S. Morris III, to hire Wells, Harris assigned the aspiring cartoonist to a special editorial-page project on a 90-day trial basis. The 90 days stretched to almost 27 years.

A self-described “attack cartoonist,” Wells penned thousands of cartoons for The Chronicle from 1971 to his retirement in 1998 that caught the attention of readers not only locally but across the globe. Syndicated to more than 400 publications worldwide, his cartoons often appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post and magazines such as Time, Newsweek and Playboy.
