Date: August 1939
Creator: Berryman, Clifford Kennedy, 1869-1949
Description: Political cartoon drawing by C.K. Berryman, featuring Uncle Sam, Sam Rayburn and President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The cartoon depicts Uncle Sam as the central character. He is holding columns marked "HOUSING" and "BILL" in his left and right arms respectively. He appears to be shaking them and the columns are both broken and surrounded by other broken columns. A hat near his feet reads, "HOUSE." Sam Rayburn stands before President Roosevelt in the lower left corner. Sam Rayburn says, "I'M SORRY, MR. PRESIDENT. BUT THE FELLOW REALLY DOESN'T KNOW HIS OWN STRENGTH." The cartoon is a commentary on the House voting down Roosevelt's proposed $800 million Housing Bill which would have provided funding to the impoverished people in the U.S. This was just one of many bills proposed by FDR that was voted down by Congress. Berryman autographed the cartoon in the lower right corner. It reads, "DEAR SAM RAYBURN--MY HAT'S OFF TO A FELLOW WHO KNOWS! C.K. BERRYMAN, EVENING STAR, AUG., 1939"
