Biographical History

Carey Orr (1890-1967) was a Pulitzer prize winning American editorial cartoonist.

Born in Ada, Ohio on January 17 1890, Carey Cassius Orr later moved to Spokane, Washington to live with his father. As a teenager, he took a correspondence course in cartooning. But following high school, Orr studied math and engineering at his father’s urging. Orr went on to find success as a semi-professional baseball pitcher and used his earnings to study at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts.

Orr worked briefly for the Chicago Examiner and also as editorial cartoonist for the Nashville Tennessean from 1912 to 1917. While in Nashville, Orr was frequently the target of editorials by the opposition paper, the Banner ran by Major E.B. Stahlman. Orr's work also appeared in Literary Digest and Cartoons Magazine. In 1917, Orr returned to Chicago as an editorial cartoonist for the Chicago Tribune, filling in for John T. McCutcheon. Orr created the "Tiny Tribune" strip that appeared in the paper; each of the four panels caricatured a section of the paper. Eventually, Orr replaced John T. McCutcheon.

Orr received the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning in 1961 for his October 8, 1960 cartoon. He also won several awards from the Freedoms Foundation and was presented with a gold medal from the United States government for his World War I cartoons. He was also featured on the television program, This is Your Life. Orr also is credited with drawing the "The Kernel Cootie" strip from approximately 1919 to 1922.

Orr retired from the Chicago Tribune on January 1, 1963. He died on May 16, 1967 at Evanston Hospital.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Carey Orr Cartoons are arranged in two series and contain original editorial cartoons, colored proofs of original cartoons and scrapbooks of published cartoons.

Cartoons (1917-1962) consists of approximately 5,314 original editorial cartoons drawn by Orr, primarily for the Chicago Tribune. Orr's work focused on local, state, national and international politics. His cartoons often feature lots of text used to label particular elements as well as signage and dialogue. From 1943 onward, for many dates, there are also photostat proofs or copies of the same cartoon that have been colored.

Early works are dated with only years. Other cartoons often contain more than one date, in the form of stamps with engraver's dates and other dates possibly indicating intended publication. For the purposes of this inventory, xxx dates have been used. Original works measure 14 ½" x 17 ½" and were drawn in ink on illustration board. Photostats measure approximately 9" x 10".

Please note, part of the inventory below is a detailed item-level description of cartoons from 1916-1928. Items from these years have been assigned numbers. The remaining years have been described at the box level with dates only.

The Scrapbooks (1943-1962) series contains 17 scrapbooks of Orr's color editorial cartoons. The originals have been disassembled and foldered; one has been retained in its original form. Accompanying some scrapbooks are lists of dates with some title information and information about cartoons not represented in the scrapbooks.
