Political Cartoons from the Crash to the Millennium

Herb Block's History and Library of Congress exhibition of his political cartoons over 70 years. The political cartoon is not a news story and not an oil portrait. It's essentially a means for poking fun, for puncturing pomposity. Herb Block drew cartoons at the Washington Post as a signed expression of personal opinion. The first page is Block's story on why he drew political cartoons.

Published by Library of Congress in 2001

"It has been a real boost to have a blog that parents and students can go to and see not only the finished product, but the planning and putting everything together that the kids do. My eCoach has helped me so much by providing a space to show the process AND to share resources. (I can't keep track of my bookmarks, so if it's something I think is really good, I put it in 'Resources' on the team page. Now I can find it!) Take a bow!"
