Thanksgiving Aftermath, Editorial cartoon, 11/26/1932

This editorial cartoon was published by the Des Moines Register on the Saturday following Thanksgiving Day, 1932. It is part of the Jay N. (Ding) Darling Papers held by the University of Iowa Libraries Special Collections Department. Harold I. (Tom) Carlisle, born in Jefferson, IA in 1904, was assistant to "Ding" Darling at the Register, and produced many cartoons for the front page of that newspaper. Carlisle succeeded Darling as primary cartoonist after Darling retired in 1949, and continued in that role until his own retirement in 1953.
