Subject

New Deal, 1933-1939
Presidents--United States
World War, 1939-1945--United States

Description

Ink drawing. In the last year of his life, Young actually defended Franklin D. Roosevelt. In this image, Roosevelt sits at a desk covered with papers listing the threats he faces while George Washington and Abe Lincoln look on approvingly. Young’s implied support for the New Deal in this cartoon is a noteworthy contrast to his criticism of Theodore Roosevelt’s watered down socialism in his “Stealing Thunder” cartoon decades earlier and his “I will never desert you Mr. Micawber” cartoon just a few years before.
