- Clifford Berryman Cartoon Collection (132)
The cartoons address D.C. community issues, congressional appropriation and District finances, holidays and events, national politics, District political representation, weather and nature, and World Wars I and II. Many of these works include Berryman’s most famous creation, the “Berryman Bear,” a small, fuzzy bear cub often paired with President Theodore Roosevelt that was the inspiration for the toy teddy bear. The collection also contains a handful of miscellaneous Berryman drawings and printed cards and caricatures of prominent Washingtonians.
The entire D.C. Public Library Berryman cartoon collection has been digitized and is arranged in alphabetical order by title. Additional Berryman cartoons can be found in the collections of the National Archives and Records Administration and the Library of Congress, among other institutions.
