|Covarrubias (1904-1957) was better known as a contributor of refined, sharp and linear caricatures to Vanity Fair and the New Yorker. It is surprising he did not do more work for FORTUNE.His double page supplement commissioned for a feature on the development of American radio is a pip. He was already successful as a caricaturist in his native Mexico before coming to work in New York in 1923. He was later active as an archaologiost and writer about Meso-American culture

There is a large collection of his work at the Mexican Museum, San Francisco.
