Mr. Haefeli is known for his ground-breaking inclusion of gay characters in The New Yorker cartoons. Bob Mankoff, the cartoon editor of The New Yorker from 1997 to 2017, once said of Haefeli, “Bill’s cartoon artistry is unsurpassed, as is the comedy of manners, mores, and morals his cartoons delineate for the gay, the straight, and everyone in between.”
