For decades, Donald Button Holmes was part of the voice of The Aegis editorial page. His cartoons, put together in a style not typical of the craft, graced the opinion pages of this newspaper until his death a few years back. In all, he penned about 2,300 visual musings on the state of affairs in Harford County and environs beyond.
An assemblage of his works is being put together for public display Sundays this month and in August at the Liriodendron Mansion at 502 W. Gordon St. in Bel Air. Also on display will be editorial cartoons by John Stees, longtime editorial cartoonist for The Sun and The Evening Sun of Baltimore.
