George White Political Cartoons

This digital collection consists of 197 of George White's editorial political cartoons published in the Tampa Morning Tribune from the 1940s to the 1960s. Topics include World War Two, national politics, Florida politics, and Tampa culture.

George Robert White was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1901 and relocated to Tampa with this family in 1915. After completing a correspondence course in drawing, White studied art under Tampa artist Walter Collins. He started as a commercial artist at the Tampa Morning Tribune in 1928 and by 1934 was a regular cartoonist at the Tribune. His cartoons were featured on the front page and became a staple of the paper until his death on March 7, 1964. In 1943, a compilation of his World War Two cartoons were compiled and edited by Byron S. Stephens in a book entitled, The War in Black With White.
