Cartoons for Then and Now at Kheel

On January 30, the ILR News Center published a story on a collection of John Baer cartoons housed at the Kheel Center for Labor-Management Documentation and Archives. Baer, who some claim coined the term “New Deal”, published over 12,000 cartoons over the course of his career; the collection focuses on cartoons that saw print between the 1930s and the 1960s, and like so much of his work deal with issues of labor and the workplace.

The Baer cartoon collection represents just a small — if extremely interesting — slice of the Kheel Center’s massive collection, which totals more than 17,000 linear feet. If you study the world of work, you owe yourself a visit.
