Claude's Whistle Stop Tour

Cartoonist Claude Smith takes us along on a candidate's whistle stop tour during the Presidential campaign season of 1952 (Eisenhower vs. Stevenson). This multi-panel cartoon was published in The New Yorker at the height of the political season. Claude, as he signed his name, evidently conceived this as a seven-panel cartoon, but it was published in only six panels. The original artwork is currently listed on eBay.
