Through October 2 at Baker Library
Pepper . . . and Salt

A selection of the Wall Street Journal's highly celebrated "Pepper . . . and Salt" cartoons has been donated to Harvard Business School's Baker Library by Charles Preston, founder and editor of the feature. Mr. Preston will continue to add to the collection, building a unique archive of the social and cultural history of business across the decades. To celebrate this donation, Baker Library is presenting "The Funny Side of the Street: Introducing the Wall Street Journal Cartoon Collection at Baker Library." The exhibit continues through October 2 in the Baker lobby.

Organized by Baker's Historical Collections staff and supported by the de Gaspe Beaubien Family Endowment at Harvard Business School, the exhibit features a selection of 66 cartoons from 42 artists chosen from the wealth of "Pepper . . . and Salt" cartoons published since June 6, 1950. Cartoon themes include office humor, technology, feminism, Vietnam, cultural fads, and much more.

A selection of cartoons is available on the exhibit web site at http://www.library.hbs.edu/hc/wsj.
