Date:
1920-1961
Scope and Contents note:
28 scrapbooks containing proofs and newspaper clippings (i.e., reproductions) of the comic strip "Winnie Winkle" from 37 complete years (1920, 1922-45, 1950-61) of daily black-and-white strips and color Sunday editions. Evidently, the clippings from 1946 1949 were lost at some point prior to the acquisition of this collection by the Smithsonian. This material is of significance as the cartoonist's own collection of his work.
Biographical/Historical note:
"Winnie Winkle, the Breadwinner" was a comic strip written and drawn by Martin M. Branner. The main character is Winnie Winkle, "a poor, but pretty working goil, [who] is struggling to support her little family." The concept was an untraditional one at the time of the strip's first appearance in 1920. The strip lasted in daily and Sunday newspapers until 1961.
Related Archival Materials:
Original pen drawings by Branner form part of same accession in Graphic Arts collections (now Division of Work and Industry).
