Watch out! William Jennings Bryan has risen from the grave! No, I’m not referring to some B-grade horror movie put out by Hammer Studios (although I would probably watch it if there was one). A while back I wrote about some of our political cartoon collections. The Library/Archives staff recently ran across these cartoons of Bryan coming back from his “political death.”
The drawings are part of our John Tinney McCutcheon collection. Although McCutcheon wasn’t a Nebraskan, he was well known for his cartoons portraying William Jennings Bryan during his political career.
For more information about this collection or about William Jennings Bryan, please contact the Library/Archives Division.
