Herbert Lawrence Block, aka Herblock, was the editorial cartoonist for the Washington Post from 1946-2001. This project examines his life, work and politics as represented in his cartoons. It is based on my Master’s thesis entitled “Herblock’s Korea: The Life and Work of Cartoonist Herbert Block, 1950-1953.” completed for Claremont Graduate University in 2010.
