Guide to the Fred Wright Cartoons
||Fred Wright Cartoons
||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.
