This extensive and rich treasure trove of cartoons from Populist newspapers of the 1890s tells the story of one of the most successful third-party movements in American history. The arguments made in these illustrations resonated with late nineteenth-century readers, as evidenced by the continued use of the term Populist. This selection of cartoons and Worth Robert Miller's commentary give the common man's perspective on the politics of corporate greed in terms still relevant today.
