A Catalog of War-time Political Cartoons by Dr. Seuss

Many people are not aware of the fact that Dr. Suess, the beloved illustrator of many children’s books, was also a political cartoonist. He drew over 400 cartoons between 1941-43 for a New York newspaper called PM.  The Mandeville Special Collections Library at the University of California at San Diego has now put this collection online as Dr. Seuss Went to War: A Catalog of Political Cartoons by Dr. Seuss. The cartoons are arranged in chronological order, by year, by month, by day. The images are also browsable by subject terms such as; people, region, domestic issue (eg racism for instance) or battle. Unfortunately, the site relies on frames, so it is hard to link directly to subsections of the site without causing the visitor to lose their access to navigation.
