Political Cartoons of the Past

Recent M&S alum Jesse Chen (’16), through her work as a special collections assistant at the JHU Sheridan Libraries, has curated an exhibit on 11 vintage political cartoons she discovered through her research, which were the work of two Baltimore Sun cartoonists (Edmund Duffy and Tom Flannery) of the last century. The cartoons are from the 1920s through the 1960s and Chen noticed that they parallel many political concerns of present day politics.

Her display is on view in the Special Collections Reading Room in Brody Learning Commons through Aug. 26.
