The Janet A. Ginsburg Chicago Tribune Collection

"Why, Calvin!"

This Carey Orr political cartoon shows "Mother G.O.P." introducing Silent Cal (President Calvin Coolidge) to Uncle Sam. She is talking about how quiet Cal is when Coolidge bursts through the door playing a drum and a trumpet bursting with "speech on intolerance", "statement on Europe," and other controversial things the president had said.
