June Feature: New eBook

America and the World presents 63 political cartoons by Clifford K. Berryman that invite students to discuss American foreign policy from the Spanish American War to the start of World War II. Berryman was a remarkably creative artist who published a cartoon almost every day for more than 50 years. From 1896 to 1949, his cartoons were featured on the front pages of leading Washington, DC, daily newspapers — first the Washington Post and then The Evening Star. This eBook presents a selection of cartoons that show Berryman’s insight into the people, institutions, issues, and events that shaped an important era of American history.

Berryman is remembered as one of America’s greatest political cartoonists, an artist whose charming and thought-provoking illustrations resonated with the public.
