The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s two-time Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist, Daniel Fitzpatrick, chronicled the progression of WWII as it happened with powerful and poignant editorial cartoons. The three installments of this yearlong exhibition present visual commentary on the events of the war as they happened. The second installment focuses on examples made between December of 1941 and the spring of 1943.

This installment will open on Saturday, Dec. 7 with a tour at 1:30 pm given by exhibition curator, Dr. Joan Stack. Before and after the tour patrons have the opportunity to view a one-day-only pop-up exhibit featuring WWII letters and other items related to the war from SHSMO’s manuscript collection. Light refreshments will be served in the lobby.
