Biographical History

Bruce Alexander Russell (1903-1963) was a Pulitzer Prize winning American cartoonist who spent over 30 years at the Los Angeles Times.

Russell was born in Los Angeles on August 4, 1903, the son of Alexander and Flora (Saunders) Russell. In 1921 Russell graduated from Los Angeles Polytechnic High School and in 1926 he received a degree from the University of California at Los Angeles, where he had drawn cartoons for the university newspaper, The Daily Bruin, and for The California Grizzly. Russell began his professional career at the Los Angeles Evening Herald. His early work appeared in various national publications, among them College Humor and Collier's, as well as in The California Pelican, published in Berkeley. In 1927 Russell joined the Los Angeles Times art staff as a sports and theater cartoonist and also sketched for the paper's illustrated magazine. During this period he created the popular Associated Press comic strip Rollo Rollingstone, which ran from 1930 to 1933. In 1934 Russell became the editorial cartoonist for the Los Angeles Times, a position he retained until his death nearly thirty years later when he was replaced by Paul Conrad.

Russell won a Pulitzer Prize in 1946 for his cartoon "Time to Bridge That Gulch" that was published on November 30, 1945 and depicted the gap between the United States and Russia. Sigma Delta Chi presented him with the Distinguished Service Award in 1948, 1950 and 1951. He also received the Headliners' Award for editorial cartoons in 1949, and from 1949 to 1962 his work was annually recognized by the Freedoms Foundation award. His other honors include the Christopher Award (1953) and an award from the U.S. Treasury (1960 or 1958?). At UCLA, Russell was named the Edward A. Dickson Alumnus of the year in 1951. Russell was a member of the National Cartoonists Society and the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists.

On December 18, 1963 Bruce Russell died of a heart attack in Los Angeles, California.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Bruce Russell Papers contain original artwork, correspondence, memorabilia, the artist's idea file, clippings and writings. The collection documents the Russell's career as a cartoonist and his work in several genres with material from the early 1920s through his death in 1963. It also includes original works by other cartoonists, often inscribed to Russell.

Cartoon clippings (1922-1963) provides examples of Russell’s published work. Items are arranged within categories that reflect the development of Russell's career: college and other early work, comic strips and features, editorial cartoons, general illustrations, sports and Hollywood and theater. Samples of his early work include clippings from The California Pelican, Southern Alumnus, and College Humor. His comic features include "The Week in Review" and "Cartoonews," as well as the strips Good Old Chump and Rollo Rollingstone.

Editorial cartoons prepared daily for the Los Angeles Times between 1928 and 1963 form the largest part of the clippings section. Clippings of editorial cartoons from 1946 to 1963 are mostly cut from the Times editorial page and are substantially complete, arranged chronologically to the day. There is a gap between mid-July 1952 and December 1953.

As seen in both these clippings and his work in the Original Drawings series, Russell's editorial work paralleled the generally conservative editorial viewpoint of the Los Angeles Times. Recorded by Russell's pen were two major wars and the harbingers of the war in Vietnam, the beginnings of space exploration, the emergence of new political leaders, among them the Californian Richard Nixon, and life in southern California as the area grew in economic and political influence. Besides the national and international events that provided topics for his editorial comment, there also recur in his cartoon work references to rising taxes and Los Angeles politics, as well as many public service themes: traffic safety, the scouting movement, U.S. savings bonds, and charitable fund drives. During these years he developed a number of stylistic devices: the shrouded skeleton, an oafish Mars, the impoverished taxpayer dressed in a barrel, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, punning cartoon titles, the personifications John Q. Public and Miss Democracy, map outlines of political boundaries used metaphorically, and, from World War II, a maniacal Hitler, a slovenly Mussolini, and a fierce stereotype of the Japanese.

Correspondence (1922-1963) contains a small amount of both incoming and outgoing correspondence. Correspondents of interest include staff at MGM and Collier’s; Richard Nixon and Eleanor Roosevelt. Subjects include acceptance notices for submitted artwork, requests for original cartoons and notes thanking the artist for his cooperation in charitable drives.

The Idea file series contains folders of illustrations, mostly clippings, as well as sketches, photographs, and published cartoons, that constitute a working reference file used by Russell in his work. These folders are alphabetically arranged by subject. The subject headings as they appear on the folders are Russell's own, except for headings in brackets. There are folders for political figures and other notables, such Russell trademarks as Tweedledum and Tweedledee and his characterization of the Roman god Mars, as well as such traditional symbols as the donkey and the elephant, bulls and bears, the eagle, Father Time, and Uncle Sam. There is also a folder of clippings of work by other cartoonists.

The Memorabilia series (1921-1964) contains a variety of material, primarily related to Russell's career. Included are his diploma from cartooning school before he entered the University of California, awards, photographs of Russell and his family and autographed by notables including California political figures Edmund ("Pat") Brown, Goodwin Knight, Norris Poulson, and James Roosevelt, labor leader John L. Lewis, Edward R. Stettinius, Jr., Arthur E. Summerfield, Raymond Moley, Senator Harry L. Byrd, and the cartoonists Rube Goldberg and George McManus. Also included is promotional material, clippings of articles about Russell, exhibition information, a copyright registration card and miscellaneous proofs.

Original Drawings (1891-1963) comprises the majority of this collection. The series is divided into works by Russell and works by other cartoonists. Original artwork by Bruce Russell spans his professional career, from early sketches from around 1922 to some of his last editorial cartoons. Most of this work was done for the Los Angeles Times. Like the clippings that are arranged earlier in the collection, the original drawings by Bruce Russell are arranged by categories that follow chronologically the development of his career. There are over 650 finished drawings by Russell, including 241 editorial cartoons and over 300 drawings for the comic strip Rollo Rollingstone. There are also 50 pencil sketches for editorial cartoons. Also worth noting are Russell's Hollywood illustrations. Some pieces of his non editorial work was signed with the name "Bruce Barr".

Russell's collection of work by other artists contains 164 drawings. Many of the cartoons are inscribed, and all inscriptions, unless otherwise noted, are to Bruce Russell. Among the editorial cartoonists represented are Gib Crockett, Herblock, Jim Ivey, Bill Mauldin, Carey Orr and Vaughn Shoemaker. Work by the cartoonists Al Capp, Rube Goldberg, Jimmy Hatlo, and George Herriman is also present, along with a color cell from a Woody Woodpecker animation and a Charles Schulz "Peanuts" strip from 1955. There are also several cartoons by unidentified artists.

Writings consists of two items. There are notes about the comic strip Rollo Rollingstone and typed questions prepared for the State Department and Pentagon from 1963.
