March 1914: In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb?
“In like a lion, out like a lamb? Here’s hoping.” These sentiments were shared 100 years ago, on March 2, 1914 by Minneapolis Journal cartoonist Charles “Bart” Bartholomew. Bart worked as a political cartoonist for the Journal from 1899-1915. He was also the dean of the Federal Schools’ division of illustrating and cartooning, organized Bart Supplies art supply store, and wrote twelve textbooks on illustration and cartooning.
Special Collections has an extensive collection of Bart cartoons and proofs, collection M/A 1994.06.01-08. We are nearing completion of the full description of this collection and are in the process of digitizing the cartoons.
