On the Cover

Before the election of 1948, the presidency was a lock for Republican Thomas Dewey--so said the polls. About two week's after Clifford Berryman's cartoon was published, Harry S. Truman held aloft a copy of the Chicago Tribune, headlined "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN," hist jubilance signaling his upset victory. Photo: Clifford Berryman, "What's the Use of Going Through with the Election?"
