Political Cartoon Panel Exhibitions

Available for use in
classrooms, museums, libraries, and organizations.

The Herb Block
Foundation presents four panel exhibitions displaying reproductions of
the work of legendary Washington Post editorial cartoonist Herbert

exhibitions is to promote Herblock’s efforts to defend the rights and
freedoms of Americans through his political cartoons. Prepared by
Curator Harry L. Katz, these exhibitions can be used for teaching or
promoting the American topics that reflect Herblock’s passions-
Education, Democracy, Civil Rights and the Presidency. Together all
four present a fascinating history of Herblock’s 72 year career.

rental fee is required- only the shipping fees via Fedex or UPS are

A seven minute DVD, Herblock: The Man Behind the
