EDWARD TENNYSON REED (1860-1933) made his first contribution to Punch in June 1889 and joined the staff the following year. Born in Greenwich, London, and educated, like Winston Churchill, at Harrow, as the son of an MP, Reed became Punch's parliamentary caricaturist in 1884 and remained so until 1912, when he left Punch to draw for The Bystander. Winston Churchill, during his early years in Parliament, was a favorite subject of Reed's.
