political cartooning

UW Libraries Special Collections

Political cartoons reflect the mood of the times. That’s apparent in a new exhibit at the University of Washington Libraries.

On display in Special Collections  are the drawings of the late Northwest editorial cartoonist Howard Fisher, whose work for the Oregon Journal spanned the period just after World War I to the mid-1950s. His cartoons, which cover the rise of fascism, World War II  and the early days of the Cold War, were syndicated in newspapers across the country.
