The cartoonist Boz is Miss Annie Hope Campbell, "a young Irishwoman who has spent the greater part of her life in Australia. Before coming here she secured a scholarship, and also an art master's certificate at the Royal College of Art, London. Under the pen name of "Boz," she has been doing clever caricature sketches for twelve years, and her identity was only discovered this year by the editors of a certain paper to which she is a regular contributor. By them "Boz" has always been regarded as a man."--Information from the Weekly Times, Victoria for 1 January 1916.
