(Not Yet) Candidate Teddy Roosevelt: Cartoons Magazine Centennial, February 1912, Part 9

We close out our extracts from the February 1912 issue of Cartoons Magazine‘s Centennial Year, with the major not-yet-a-candidate in the 1912 Presidential ElectionTeddy Roosevelt.

The concentration above left of Egyptian Sphinx cartoons with T.R.’s face, including by A.B. Chapin and Clifford K. Berryman, owes to Roosevelt’s recent trip to Egypt. Above right, by John T. McCutcheon, a cadre of Democrats worried at the idea of facing a Republican nominated T.R., rather than the incumbent. (This would have been equivalent to Democrats this year, going with Hilary Clinton instead of Barack Obama.)

Click on the above & below pictures, to view the cartoons in detail, and read their captions.

Below, another set of T.R. cartoons, including one by Fontaine Fox. My favorit below, though, is Looking for the Always Right Candidate, by the unidentified artist of the New York Call.
