National Centennial Exhibition of New Zealand Art Catalogue
Born at Auckland in 1866, William Blomfield received training as an architectural and later a lithographic draughtsman in his youth. In 1888 he was engaged as cartoonist by the New Zealand Observer, contributing constantly to it until his death in 1938. His famous 'Judge Edwards' cartoon in 1913, and the libel action following it, caused a sensation in the newspaper world.
