100 years of cartoons on display

Editorial cartoons by Daniel “Fitz” Fitzpatrick and Tom Engelhardt are featured in an exhibit in the State Historical Society of Missouri in Columbia.
The exhibit, “100 Years of Election Cartoons: 1908-2008,” opened in September during the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Missouri School of Journalism.
Fitzpatrick and Engelhardt both retired from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Engelhardt succeeded Fitzpatrick, his idol, as the paper’s editorial cartoonist. Engelhardt, 77, will talk about the exhibit on Oct. 13 in the main gallery of the Historical Society.
Fitzpatrick, who retired from the Post-Dispatch in 1958, donated a large number of his cartoons to the Historical Society. He died in 1969.
The Society’s collection of more than 8,000 editorial cartoons is considered among the best in the nation.
