Herblock in World War II


Editorial Review

Though he may best be remembered for his Watergate-era cartoons aimed at Richard Nixon, longtime Washington Post political cartoonist Herbert Block -- better known under his pen name Herblock -- won his first Pulitzer Prize in 1942 for work about fascism and the beginnings of World War II. The Library of Congress's Sara Duke and Martha Kennedy look at this era during a lunchtime tour of the recently opened "Herblock!" exhibit.
