'Min' – Gordon Minhinnick (1st of 2)

Gordon Minhinnick, known as 'Min', was the pre-eminent New Zealand cartoonist from the mid-1930s through to the 1960s. Despite 'retiring' in 1976, he continued having cartoons published until 1987. In the accompanying sound clip Minhinnick discusses the 'corrosive'  nature of cartooning as a form of political commentary.
