Political Cartoon of Sam Rayburn by C.K. Berryman

Description:

Drawing by political cartoonist, C.K. Berryman. Done in black ink. The drawing shows caricatures of Sam Rayburn speaking to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Rayburn is sweating profusely as he appears to say, "Everything is harmonious, Mr. President!" Roosevelt is seated at a desk looking at Rayburn. Roosevelt says, "You may think its harmony but sounds awful sour to me!" The dome of the U.S. Capitol stands in the background. Angry words can be seen around the capitol as if those inside are yelling. Words such as "Boo!" "Blah!" and "Throw him out!" can be seen. The cartoon is a commentary on the difficulty Rayburn had in organizing the Democratic party due to differing viewpoints from the various congressmen.
Berryman autographed the cartoon in the lower right corner. It reads, "TO MY GOOD FRIEND RAYBURN WHO NEVER SAYS DIE! C.K. BERRYMAN EVENING STAR, JULY 30, 1939"
