Bob Englehart (born 1945) was an editorial cartoonist for the Hartford Courant from December 15, 1980 until the end of 2015, when he accepted a "voluntary buyout plan."[1] Before that, from 1975 to 1980, he served as editorial cartoonist for the Journal-Herald in Dayton, Ohio.[2]

Born on November 7, 1945 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Englehart dropped out of the American Academy of Art in 1967 and joined Chicago Today. According to his Courant biography, "One day, in a composing room error, Englehart's weekly cartoon ran large at the top of the editorial page and Wayne's ran small at the bottom. A career was born."[3]

Englehart was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 1979. His cartoons have appeared in the New York Times, USA Today, Time magazine, Newsweek, and Sports Illustrated.
