Descriptive Summary

 
Creator: Wright, Fred
Title: Fred Wright Cartoons
Dates [inclusive]: 1950-1969
Abstract: The Fred Wright Cartoons consist of roughly 50 original cartoons by Fred Wright. Wright was a staff artist for the UE News, the paper of the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers (UE). He also produced artwork for the union's fliers and organizational material. Generally, each drawing is ink on paper or board and stamped on the back by the  UE News and thus was likely either published in that publication or submitted for publication. The cartoons cover a number of different issues including civil rights in the south and civil liberties, as well labor issues, military spending, and the Vietnam War. The material ranges in date from 1950-1969.
