Taking an expansive view of American politics during the 20th century, the digital exhibition examines the work of one of the pre-eminent editorial cartoonists of the time. Jerry Doyle (1898-1986), a native Philadelphian and self-taught graphic illustrator, penned daily cartoons for the Philadelphia Record and the Philadelphia Daily News from the mid-1930s to the early 1980s.

“As a digital exhibition, ‘The World According to Jerry Doyle’ will connect with a broader audience beyond Penn State, sharing original materials online for visitors to discover and experience wherever they are across the commonwealth and around the world,” said Jennifer Meehan, head of the Eberly Family Special Collections Library.
