About this collection

These ten original pen-and-ink drawings include political cartoons by socialist cartoonist Guy H. Lockwood (1870–1947), as well as student work from a correspondence art school Lockwood ran for several decades from his Kalamazoo, Michigan, home. Included are pieces for the socialist newspaper Appeal to Reason, the socialist magazines Unity and The Billy Goat, as well as an advertisement mock-up for the American Socialist College.  Lockwood was hired by Julius A. Wayland for illustrations in his Girard, Kansas socialist newspaper, Appeal to Reason. In addition to his many publishing activities, Lockwood operated his correspondence art school for several decades beginning around 1910. Included here are several examples of work by students and associates. The drawings are for the most part political in nature, and most appear to have been prepared for publication.
