Title:

Editorial cartoons pertaining to the Mexican Revolution

Creator/Contributor:

Kettlewell, Frank., creator

Creator/Contributor:

Oakland Tribune, Inc

Abstract:

Original drawings for editorial cartoons, likely produced for the Oakland Tribune, commenting on the Mexican Revolution. One drawing refers to the Mexican constitutional congress of 1917, in particular the new constitution's Article 33, allowing for the expulsion of unwanted aliens. The drawing depicts a man in a sombrero and sarape reading the Article to an anxious President Venustiano Carranza, while a smug Francisco "Pancho" Villa listens aside. The other drawing depicts an Uncle Sam figure at the United States-Mexico border reacting approvingly to the ascension to power of Alvaro Obregón and Plutarco Elías Calles, represented by a joyous mob shouting the names of the Revolutionary leaders.
