Scope and Contents

The drawings by Peter S. Newell are largely composed of racist caricatures of African Americans. Drawn during the late 19th or early 20th century, there is little explanation as to why these drawings exist in this collection, other than how they have been lumped together with Updegraff's autograph collection.
