The State Historical Society of Missouri’s collection of editorial cartoons began in 1946 with an important donation of works by Pulitzer-Prize-winning artist Daniel Robert Fitzpatrick of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.The collection has now grown to more than 8,000 works and includes many other well-known cartoonists such as Bill Mauldin and Tom Engelhardt. Most of the cartoons in the Society's collection that touch upon peace and pacifism were drawn by Fitzpatrick or Engelhardt. This selection of editorial cartoons captures the essence of events and movements in Missouri and US history such as the Armistice after World War I and the protest movement opposing the Vietnam War.
