Historic Cartoons on Display at the Library

     Come to the Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library to view the exhibit Campaigns & Cartoons. You’ll see original sketches and published political cartoons from 1860-1912. These unique art works demonstrate the evolution of such symbols as Uncle Sam, Miss Columbia, and the Democrat donkey and Republican elephant. They will be on display everyday except Sunday from now until Thurs., Oct. 30, from 2 - 4 PM. On Tues., Oct. 28 at 7 PM, the collection's owners, Sue and Julian Ridlen, will give a talk on the historical perspective that the cartoons represent. To register for the talk, click here. The exhibit is generously on loan from the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site. Many thanks to the Library Foundation for making this possible.
