Roy Grove was a cartoonist for the news syndicate Newspaper Enterprise Association from 1917 through the mid-1920's. Covering Europe during World War I, he captured the every-day life of the American soldier away from home for readers of NEA's 326 daily newspapers in the United States, including the Cleveland Press. After the war, Grove went on to cover sports for the same news syndicate.

The Roy Grove Cartoon Collection, donated to Special Collections in the Cleveland State University Library by the Gardner family, contains 64 images of cartoons drawn by Grove in both of these genres.
