Notes:
William Henry "Bill" Mauldin, a military and political cartoonist, was born in Mountain Park, New Mexico. Nationally, Mauldin was known for his daily syndicated cartoons which originate from "The Chicago Sun-Times", where he began working in June 1962, after completing four years with "The St. Louis Post-Dispatch." Mauldin's first success came during World War II while serving in the U.S. Army in the European theater. Here he created Willie and Joe (perhaps his most recognized characters), for which he was awarded his first Pulitzer prize, becoming the youngest person to receive this honor. Mauldin won a second Pulitzer Prize, although he never received his high school diploma. He later covered both the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
Summary:
Collection is believed to contain all of Mauldin's published cartoons from 1946 to 1987; also periodical and newspaper articles about and by Mauldin, personal items, including his genealogy, and an original sketchbook used by Mauldin while he was in Vietnam, February 1965.
