Stew Cameron

Stew Cameron - possibly the only victim of Socred inspired terrorism - was a cartoonist who published editorial cartoons that enraged the Social Credit premier of Alberta, "Bible Bill" Aberhart in the early 1940s.  In his book on Canadian cartoonists The Hecklers, (1979) Peter Desbarats reported that Stew's home "was once fire-bombed", but John Adcock has said he could not substantiate this. Cameron is best known for his cowboy cartoons.

  1. Dear, dear Mark I've been looking everywhere for Stew Cameron's work ( cowboy stuff ) mygranddad had book of the Calgary stampede that I poured over as a kid. No one else ever caught the true nature of it all. Gritty, Flirty and some how innocent. Please help find these true treasures. The chuck wagon race was my dads favorite cause he'd been in those wreaks. The life we used to live is gone, but hopefully Cameron's art can still be found. Thank you
