The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s two-time Pulitzer-prize winning cartoonist, Daniel Fitzpatrick, chronicled the progress of WWII 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 first installment, The Onset of War, August 1939–November 1941, is on display during the 80th anniversary of the Nazi invasion of Poland that precipitated the beginning of WWII in Europe on Sept. 1, 1939.
