In 1938 Tumlinson identified the character in a comic as an ex-con from Brooklyn who was considered "too tough" for Alcatraz, and sentenced to A&M. The character was named "Magarkin" later and turned into an upperclassman in the Corps who frequently appeared with his freshman buddy "Fish Blotto."

Excellent story by Kenny Ryan in Tuesday's Batt on Pete Tumlinson '42, who created the caricature of Ol' Sarge as Aggies today know it. Tumlinson, a former Marvel Comics artist, passed away in Calvert last week, it says.
