From NBGS Miramichi-WIKI
Bill Hogan was born in Montreal in 1939, the son of Miramichi natives William J. and Heloise (Losier) Hogan. Bill moved with his family back to the Miramichi at the age of two and lived most of his life in Chatham (Miramichi), NB. During his schooling Hogan took lessons from Sister St. Mary Ovide at the St. Mary’s Convent. Following graduation from St. Thomas High School he became an insurance investigator. Health issues curtailed his work in the insurance field and he turned his life long interest in drawing into a new career. His first cartoon was published in 1976.
Bill Hogan’s work has been the subject of three publications and his cartoons have been exhibited in many parts of New Brunswick, Halifax, Vancouver, and St. Estève, France. In 1989 Hogan won the Atlantic Journalism Citation of Merit Award and during his career won awards from both the Atlantic and Canadian Community Newspaper Associations. He was a member of the Association of Canadian Editorial Cartoonists and the National Cartoonists Society. In addition to his work being featured in the Miramichi Leader and Moncton Times-Transcript, it also appeared in the Fredericton Daily Gleaner, Campbellton Tribune, and on the CBC. Bill Hogan passed away on November 15, 2001.
