    Raeburn Van Buren (1891-1987) Original Magazine Story Illustration (1925). An extremely prolific illustrator, Raeburn Van Buren began working in the newspaper business, moved to the pulps and eventually on to national magazines. The Saturday Evening Post, Collier's, Liberty, and Cosmopolitan, were just a few of the publications where his work appeared. In the late 1930s, Van Buren collaborated with Al Capp to create the comic strip "Abbie an' Slats."
