Political Cartoons Scrapbook

Scrapbook contains syndicated political and editorial cartoons from various newspapers and magazines, concentrating on U.S. presidential campaigns and politics of the 1920s and 1930s. Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, and Alfred "Al" Smith are all caricatured. Also includes some material on World War I, World War II, and international political figures such as Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini. Over 30 cartoonists have work represented, but the bulk of the cartoons are the work of Jay Norwood "Ding" Darling. Those with multiple examples are Reid, McCutcheon, Ray, Fitzpatrick, Shoemaker, and Brown.
