Taft vs. T.R.: Cartoons Magazine Centennial, June 1912, Part 8

Next week, our Cartoons Magazine Centennial Year coverage will be dominated by the Republican’s disastrous 1912 Convention — in what still ranks as the largest convention fight in American History. So, in preparation for that, today we feature the final bits of satirized pre-Party Split acrimony between William Howard Taft and Teddy Roosevelt, in Cartoons Magazine‘s June 1912 issue.

Above, cartoonist Billy Ireland pictures the G.O.P. about to have its head lopped off by candidates T.R. & Taft, while beneath that, Fontaine Fox and Ralph Everett Wilder depict the possibility of a third candidate being brought in, should the convention deadlock.

Below left, in “Eloquence”, Nelson Harding has Taft and T.R. in side-by-side verbal combat; while below right, Leonard Raven-Hill in the pages of British Punch magazine, shows them in actual combat.

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

Above, more cartoons on the possibility of a “dark horse” candidate (a candidate brought in at the last minute) being required to settle the G.O.P Presidential nomination, by cartoonists J.E. Murphy and Vie Lambdin.

Below, Lee Stanley and fellow cartoonists, on Teddy and Taft attending the Ananias Club — which translates into them labeling both candidates as “liars”.

Below, pending doom for the Republican Party on account of the internal Party fight, as illustrated by James H. Donahey, Nelson Harding, W.A. Rogers, J.E. Murphy, and more.
