Show Summary Details


With the early retirement of Bill Mauldin, the task of translating moral anger at McCarthyism, Southern segregationists, and the inertia of the Eisenhower administration into political cartoons, cartoon strips, and drawings fell to Herbert Block, Walt Kelly, and Robert Osborn, the focus of this chapter. At a time when satiric cartooning was in retreat, Mauldin, Block, Kelly, and Osborn kept the tradition of angry graphic commentary alive.

Keywords: McCarthyism; Southern segregationists; Eisenhower administration; political cartoons; Herbert Block; Walt Kelly; Robert Osborn; satiric cartooning
