Title
A gallery of pen sketches in black and white of our Michigan friends "as we see 'em.", by Newpaper Cartoonists' Association of Michigan.
Other Title
Our Michigan friends "as we see 'em"
Summary
This is a collection of cartoons and caricatures of Michigan's business leaders, professionals, politicians, and other notables drawn by cartoonists from such newspapers as the Detroit News and the Free Press. The subjects are treated as a pantheon of "Michiganders," "who perform their share of the world's work in such a manner as to bring them into public notice." Each illustration combines a realistic portrait of the subject's head with a caricatured body, and shows him performing activities associated with his particular calling. Icons, symbols, and stereotypes facilitate instant recognition of the trades, businesses, and professions represented. There are no women included, and ethnic minorities are occasionally portrayed in a disparaging manner.
