Pearl Harbor 1941 – Cartoonists’ Take of the Time


Augustus J. Robinson, Boston Daily Globe 

Below are some editorial cartoons from the days following
the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor (80 years ago today).

[Note: offensive caricatures and a term for the Japanese people is used in a few of the cartoons.
They have not been ignored here and presented as part of the historical perspective.]
