Charles Addams Student Cartoon Contest
Celebrating Charles Addams’ success as a Westfield High School alumnus, current Westfield middle and high school students created Addamseque cartoons inspired by a variety of themes, including his 1929 WHS Weathervane yearbook entry, which read, “He much amazed us.” And he still does!
