About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Corcoran Exhibition Honors
C.K. Berryman, Cartoonist

Clifford K. Berryman, noted newspaper cartoonist, was honored by the Corcoran Art Gallery yesterday with an exhibition of the original drawings with which he has lampooned the great and would-be great in the Nation's Capital for more than five turbulent decades.
...
For 52 years the Berryman cartoons have appeared on the front page of a Washington newspaper, first in the The Washington Post and then the Evening Star. Prominently displayed in the exhibit, which will continue in the gallery through July, was the famous drawing of President Theodore Roosevelt's inaugural ball, which appeared in The Post on March 5, 1905.

Compact Camera

And to think I used to grumble about lugging my Bronica and Benbo around, although I did actually move them the other day, they were making the top of the wardrobe bow.

Attention, Photoshoppers...

A Farkable photo if I ever saw one.

Cliff's Bear

Clifford Berryman drew this cartoon in 1902 after hearing that Teddy Roosevelt refused to shoot a captive bear cub that had been tied to a tree. After it was printed, a New York toy seller put a small stuffed bear in his shop window and labeled it "Teddy's Bear." The rest is history, and Cliff Berryman was instrumental in bringing this charming memorial to a President about.
