ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

This unsigned cartoon is from Life magazine as part of a "Traitors Number" (issue) put out after a speech by La Follette defending his reasons for defeating Wilson's Armed Ship Bill. Library of Congress cataloging indicates that the magazine we all grew up with actually continued another magazine by the same name, from which this image was probably taken: Title: Life. Publisher: New York, N.Y.: Life, 1883-1936. Description:103 v. : ill., col. plates ; 28 cm. Vol. 1, no. 1 (Jan. 4, 1883)-v. 103, no. 2620 (Nov. 1936). Continued by: Life (Chicago, Ill.: 1936) Notes: Monthly Dec. 1931-1936 Weekly 1883-Nov. 1931 Editor: Jan. 1883-1918, J.A. Mitchell. 2 vol. yearly. According to www.Life.com, the more recent version of Life magazine "...was first published as a weekly in 1936. [1st issue: Nov. 23; Editors H. R. Luce et al.] It ceased publication in 1972, but returned as a monthly, 1978-2000."
