Scope and Content of Collection

The Edwin Eugene Herron Drawings consist of original line drawings appearing as illustrations in Intercontinental Press, a journal published in New York from 1963 to 1986 on behalf of the United Secretariat of the Fourth International, and edited until his death in 1979 by Joseph Hansen. From 1963 to 1968 its title was World Outlook. Almost all of the drawings are caricatures of contemporary world leaders and other public figures, and are frequently satirical in nature. The drawings are undated but are predominantly or entirely from the late 1960s and from the 1970s.
