Collection of newspaper cartoons and caricatures from the nineteenth century Midwest

Description

Newspapers performed a vital role in the expansion of the Midwest. This database is a collection of cartoons and caricatures of Michigan's business leaders, professionals, politicians, and other important persons. Each illustration combines a realistic portrait of the subject in cartoon format, often engaged in activities of their profession. Icons, symbols, and stereotypes facilitate instant recognition of the trades, businesses and professions represented. For those researchers of early Midwest ancestors, the images in this collection can help illuminate the views and impressions of the public before the turn of the nineteenth century.
