Running for Office: Candidates, Campaigns, and the Cartoons of Clifford Berryman
Jessie Kratz (Editor), Martha Grove (Editor)

This book takes a humorous and historical look at the campaign trail as drawn by Pulitzer prize-winning cartoonist Clifford K. Berryman. A staff political cartoonist for the Washington Post and the Washington Evening Star for the first half of the twentieth century, Berryman drew thousands of cartoons commenting on the candidates, campaigns, issues and elections of his era highlighting both specific and timeless aspects of the American campaign and election process. The cartoons reproduced in this book are from an extraordinary collection of Berryman’s original cartoons in the U.S. Senate collection at the Center for Legislative Archives, National Archives.

A Washington institution, Berryman’s 53 years of daily front-page drawings were internationally renowned and his cartoons provide an unparalleled insight into the American political process. Although faces and personalities change and specific issues evolve with each new election year, Berryman’s cartoons illustrate how American political rituals have remained remarkably unchanged.
