About the Author

As a student at Boston College, Father Justin 'Fred' McCarthy (1918 - 2009) felt the call of religious service. He heard and acted on that call by transferring to St. Bonaventure College in Buffalo. It was there that his cartooning hobby flowered and drew the attention of his peers - which resulted in the appearance of a nameless little monk in college flyers and posters. In 1942, he dubbed this cheery, pint-sized creation, "Brother Juniper."

McCarthy was a member of the Secular Franciscan Order for seventy-one years. He served as art director of the national Franciscan magazine, "Friar."" He also taught classes about the art of comics and humor at numerous universities and colleges.

In 1959 the "Brother Juniper" series won "The Brotherhood of the Year" award from the National Conference of Christians and Jews.
