Pat Oliphant donates Archive to Univ. Virginia

The University of Virginia is the new home of the
papers of Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist
Patrick Bruce Oliphant.

The archive…includes more than 6,000 of Oliphant’s
daily political cartoon drawings, including the plate
used by the Denver Post to print the cartoon that
earned him the Pulitzer Prize.

University Librarian and Dean of Libraries John Unsworth
said, “It’s not only of historical significance, but also of
great artistic merit and value to students of the human
condition, and we feel very fortunate to have it here.”
