New Collection: 1920s Cartoons

The Yale Collection of American Literature has acquired a collection of humorous cartoons by an unidentified American artist, signed "F.G." or "J.G.," that feature a protagonist, Jerry, probably the alter ego of the artist, and his pursuit of women, as well as drinking alcohol, automobiles, and other subjects, circa 1926. Several of the cartoons include poems related to the image. A complete description of the collecton can be found online: Cartoons related to contemporary life in the 1920s, YCAL MSS 850. (MM)
