<p>During World War II, Caniff contributed his talents to the United States' war effort. He drew &quot;Male Call&quot; for the men serving in the armed forces. This strip featured soldiers and their escapades with a variety of women. Caniff continued this strip until 1946.</p>
<p>In 1946, Caniff agreed to draw a new comic for the Field Enterprises Syndicate. He drew &quot;Steve Canyon&quot; for the next forty-two years. Although it was a very popular comic, &quot;Steve Canyon&quot; never attained the level of success that Caniff's &quot;Terry and the Pirates&quot; had reached during the 1930s and 1940s.</p>
<p>Caniff died on May 3, 1988. The Reuben Award is given annually to the best comic strip artist. Caniff was presented with it on two occasions - , once for his work on &quot;Terry and the Pirates&quot; and once for &quot;Steve Canyon.&quot; He also served as president of the National Cartoonist's Society from 1948 to 1949. A number of cartoonists have credited Caniff with inspiring them. His friends and colleagues often referred to him as the &quot;Rembrandt of Comics.&quot;</p>
