The Artist's Memories of the Great Depression
Pen and Ink Sketches and Cartoons by Warren E. Saul (1987)

A personal note on the baseball player cartoon below, left:

During the Depression, my father was a semi-pro baseball pitcher. He got paid $3 if he lost, and a whopping $5 if he won the game. He tried out for the New York Yankees, but did not make the team. My father did, however, strike out Bobby Brown three times in one game. Bobby would go on to play third base for the Yankees, gaining a lifetime batting average of .279. Brown later became president of the American League. But it was my dad that fanned him every at-bat. Scroll down this page for more sketches.
