Description:
This "analysis of cartooning as well as Gilded Age political culture" discusses how the cartoons in Joseph Keppler's satirical magazine Puck conveyed the liberal viewpoint during the 1880's. There are a number of images (a few with extensive explanatory notes) of the work of Keppler, Bernhard Gilliam, and James A. Wales. There is also A Brief History of Cartoons. The Web site was prepared as a master's thesis at the University of Virginia.
