1962 Original John F Kennedy Political Editorial Cartoon Drawing By Ned White For Sale
Very Rare and wonderful, original 1962 Pen and Ink Political Cartoon Art by Akron (Ohio) Beacon Journal Editorial cartoonist Ned White featuring President John F. Kennedy. This outstanding, original Pen and Ink Political Cartoon measures approx. 10 1/2" by 8 1/2" and is beautifully double French matted and framed for display in a simple, wooden frame (overall size of framed display is 16 1/2" by 14 1/2"). The Cartoon is titled "Not Now - Later!" and is signed by the cartoonist at the lower right hand corner "Ned White - '62". The Frame has a manuscript notation on the reverse that states that the drawing was printed in the August 15, 1962 edition of the Akron Beacon Journal and was given to the previous owner by another cartoonist associated with the newspaper named Walt Neal.
The Cartoon depicts a scene in a doctor's office with a somewhat vacant looking JFK dressed as a doctor. On a desk to the right is a bottle of “elixir” / “medicine” with a label that reads “Tax Cut”. The President holds a stethoscope to the chest of his “patient” Uncle Sam who represents the United States Economy (the words “U.S. Economy” are seen on Uncle Sam’s chest). While one of the earpieces of the stethoscope is inserted into JFK’s right ear, the other earpiece is inserted into the ear of another doctor who is standing behind the President. That second doctor is identified as “Congress” and the second doctor is whispering into the Presidents ear. His message to Kennedy is the title of the Cartoon - “Not Now - Later!”.
The symbolism of the image is rather obvious - President Kennedy is checking the health of the U. S. Economy and trying to determine if the economy is in need of a “Tax Cut Elixir”. The Congress is urging a rather clueless looking President to delay any Tax Cuts!!
We could find little information regarding Political Editorial Cartoonist Ned White other than the fact that he worked for a number of years for the Akron (Ohio) Beacon Journal. The art is of the very highest quality and the representation of both JFK and Uncle Sam is outstanding. We would greatly appreciate any further information about the cartoonist that anyone would be willing to forward to us.
