Albert Turner Reid

Albert Turner Reid
Date: Between 1915 and 1920
A photograph showing Albert Turner Reid drawing in his studio. Reid was a successful businessman, a staunch supporter of the American farmer, a composer, a painter of murals and a teacher of art. The art school which he started with George Stone in Topeka was the beginning of Washburn University's Art Department. Although a talented artist and successful newspaper publisher, Albert T. Reid is probably best remembered for his political cartoons. Reid sold his first cartoon to the Topeka Mail & Breeze in 1896. For the next 30 years, his cartoons appeared regularly in Kansas City, Chicago, and New York newspapers and several national magazines. They remain today a major contribution to the history of American politics. A large collection of his work is in the collections of the Kansas Historical Society.

Suggesting that the state's prohibition laws were not being enforced, Nation pointed to her bruise and said, "Governor, you gave me that black eye." This sketch ran on the front page of the Topeka Mail & Breeze on February 1, 1901.

History of Kansas newspapers

History of Kansas newspapers
Creator: Kansas State Historical Society. Department of Archives
Date: 1916
The subtitle of this publication is "A History of the Newspapers and Magazines Published in Kansas From the Organization of Kansas Territory, 1854, to January 1, 1916." This history includes biographical sketches and some portraits of prominent editors. The bulk of the book contains listings of all of the newspapers published in the state, organized by county and then towns within that county. This listing begins on page 137. Newspapers that were being published in 1916 include the name of the editor/publisher, the frequency, how long it had been published, and notes about any predecessor papers. The information for each county also includes a list of all discontinued newspapers from that county. Each county listing begins with the date it was organized, the origin of the name, and some basic statistics. This volume is an excellent source on the early newspaper history of Kansas. A detailed index begins on page 323. The Kansas State Historical Society was founded by Kansas newspaper editors and its newspaper holdings represent an almost comprehensive collection of the newspapers published in all parts of Kansas, most of which are available on microfilm through interlibrary loan.

J.P. Morgan cartoon
Creator: Reid, Albert Turner
Date: between 1895 and 1905
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.
