Dan Fitzpatrick

Dan Fitzpatrick, St. Louis Post-Dispatch (1891 – 1969) Born in Superior, WI, Duffy attended Chicago Art Institute and worked as a cartoonist for the Chicago Daily News before joining the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.  His work was “never funny” but intended to promote “sympathy for the underdog” causes such as women’s suffrage and the union movement. Strongly anti-fascist, he used symbolism to transform the Nazi swastika into a horrific death machine and to challenge America to rethink isolationist views and enter World War II. He won two Pulitizer Prizes, in 1926 and 1955.
