Pen and ink cartoon depicting American financier J.P. Morgan grasping the Earth in his arms. Water-based ink drawing drawn by Albert T. Reid. The cartoonist was a native of Cloud County, Kansas. He studied at the University of Kansas and the New York School of Art. During Reid's long career, his art appeared in the Kansas City Star, Chicago Record, New York Herald, McClure's, Saturday Evening Post, and other national magazines. This undated political cartoon may be referencing J.P. Morgan's merger of the Carnegie Steel Company and several other large companies to form the massive United States Steel Corporation in 1901. The artist's work often contained anti-trust themes, and he was an admirer of Theodore Roosevelt and the Progressive Party.

Creator: Reid, Albert Turner
