Artist: Crook,
June 1960

No information other than the last name is available about the artist who drew this cartoon,
or about the cartoon itself, which highlights the success of the Reform Democrats in nailing
Tammany boss Carmine De Sapio's hide to the wall in 1960. Herbert Lehman and Eleanor
Roosevelt led the reformers in their fight to end Tammany's dominance over the New York
Democratic Party once and for all.
