Edmund Duffy


Cartoon title: The One Note Man?
By: Edmund Duffy

This cartoon is from the book The Editorial Art of Edmund Duffy by S.L. Harrison (1998 Associated University Presses, ISBN 0-8386-3766-3)). The caption for the cartoon reads:

December 7, 1941 -- This prophetic cartoon was prepared the day before Pearl Harbor was attacked at 7 a.m. Hawaiian time, early afternoon in the eastern United States. Hitler declared war four days later, his only formal declaration of war during WWII.

If you can find this book (I believe it's out of print), we highly recommend it for Edmund Duffy's excellent editorial art.

This weekend, on the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, Little Green Footballs pointed to this National Geographic Web site: Remembering Pearl Harbor.

America's future rest on whether or not we have the will to respond to 9/11 the way America responded to the enemy on December 7, 1941.
