Candidates, Campaigns, and the Cartoons of Clifford Berryman
Clifford Berryman was a Pulitzer winner and staff political cartoonist for the Washington Post and the Washington Evening Star for the first half of the twentieth century. He drew thousands of cartoons commenting on the candidates, campaigns and elections, both presidential and congressional, of his era. With simple pen strokes, his cartoons foreshadow the future, poke fun at the past, and provide unparalleled insights. Although faces and personalities change and specific issues evolve with each new election year, Berryman cartoons illustrate how the election process in America has remained remarkably unchanged.
