Who remembers Cadet Slouch?

From 1953 to 1985, The Battalion published cartoons featuring Cadet Slouch, a humorous, bumbling cadet in the Corps of Cadets.



During the 32 years he graced The Battalion's pages, Slouch witnessed the university going co-ed, changing its name and making the Corps non-mandatory, among other developments.



Slouch's tenure in the campus newspaper began when Earle approached editors Jerry Bennett '54 and Ed Holder '54 about including an occasional cartoon drawn by him.



Spurred by positive feedback from his early efforts, his occasional drawings became daily. By Thanksgiving 1953, Earle had developed his identifiable lead character, Slouch: the Aggie who always tried to make things work out, but never could.

See more cartoons featuring Cadet Slouch and learn more about the man who brought him to life, James Earle '54, in our spring 2017 issue of Spirit Magazine.

Cadet Slouch was an inspiration to me and many others. He had an intimate knowledge of life in the Corps.
