Description
This object is an original pen and ink political cartoon hand drawn on white paper by Clifford Berryman circa 1912 in Washington, D.C. during the 1912 Presidential Campaign. It depicts Theodore Roosevelt who is climbing up a pole for safety from Woodrow Wilson, who is driving a roadster-type automobile at high speed and stirring up clouds of dust. Roosevelt, who wears a hat with "Business" on the ribbon, says "I thought he'd called for low speed." In the car with Wilson are two scrolls, one labeled "Anti-Trust," and the other labeled "Trust Regula[tory] Program.” The drawing is signed "Berryman" in the lower right area of the illustration.
