Will Mahoney (Francis William Mahoney) (11 March 1905 - 1989)

Australian cartoonist Will Mahoney was possibly born today in 1905 (Sometimes attributed to 1906 and 1907). Mahoney worked during the mid 20th century as a Sydney cartoonist, illustrator, commercial artist and printmaker. Mahoney was sacked from the Daily Telegraph in 1945 after refusing to draw a certain political cartoon demanded by the editor. His replacement George Finey also left the position soon after.
