Cartoon Facelift

The Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies recently collaborated with the UGA Libraries Systems staff to revamp the Clifford H. (Baldy) Baldowski Editorial Cartoons Database. Lookin' Good -- take a peek HERE.

The database was originally launched in 2002, three years after Baldowski deeded the remainder of his cartoon to the Russell Library upon his death in 1999. The digital database contains approximately 2,600 cartoons from the collection. Clifford H. Baldowski, known by the pen-name "Baldy," depicted the local, national, and international news of his day in the editorial pages of the Augusta Chronicle, Miami Herald, and Atlanta Constitution. The database is located at http://dlg.galileo.usg.edu/baldy/index.html?Welcome. For more information on use of the cartoons, contact russlib@uga.edu.
