October Feature:
Berryman Political Cartoons

The Center for Legislative Archives holds approximately 2,400 original pen-and-ink drawings by cartoonist Clifford K. Berryman in the U.S. Senate Collection. Berryman was one of Washington's best-known political cartoonists in the first half of the 20th century. Berryman drew for the Washington Post from 1890 until 1907, and then for the Washington Evening Star from 1907 until his death in 1949. While his cartoons focused primarily on Washington politics, including presidential elections and both World Wars, Congress was one of Berryman's favorite subjects. All of Berryman's cartoons are available online through the National Archives Catalog by using the keywords: Clifford Berryman.
