The Bob Bullock Political Cartoon subseries contains political cartoons about Bullock by cartoonists from different Texas newspapers. The majority of these cartoons are framed and there are duplicates of many of the cartoons. When a cartoon was published with Bullock in it, he would contact the cartoonist to try to purchase the cartoon. Then he would make copies and frame them (including the original) and either hang them at his office, home, or simply give them away.
Bullock had an intense relationship with the press, and these cartoons represent some of the most important issues facing Texas Government during the years Bullock held public office. Some copies of these cartoons are also at the Texas State Archive in Austin, Texas, and at Hill College in Hillsboro, Texas. The majority of the framed cartoons here at Baylor are framed copies and not the originals. Paper copies of the cartoons are in a notebook for reference, along with some small cartoons from newspapers that were not purchased and framed. There are also copies of cartoons that were printed about Bullock posthumously.
The cartoons in this collection are dated between 1965 - 2008.
