Description
English: Cartoon showing US Socialist Presidential candidate, who ran from in prison in the 1920 election.

This cartoon depicts Eugene V. Debs and his quest for the presidency. Debs campaigned while in jail for denouncing the U.S. entry into war.

Text reads:

  • Debs is saying: "Anyhow, there are worse places than a front porch!"
    (a reference to Warren G. Harding's "front porch campaign")
  • A sign reads:
    Yours for The Presidency
    Eugene V. Debs
    ("Yours for the Presidency" echoes "Yours for the Revolution," a popular sign-off within Socialist circles of the period. See Jack London, or the Appeal to Reason, the most important Socialist newspaper of the era.)
  • In his pocket, Debs has a paper marked "Speech"
  • Signed "Berryman" (by Clifford K. Berryman)
