Biographical Note

The artist Edwin Eugene Herron was born in Chinook, Montana, in 1907, and died in Fort Bragg, California, in 1984. Herron produced the artwork in this collection under the pen name Copain. He was a lifelong friend of Joseph Hansen and voluminous correspondence between Herron and Hansen will be found in the Joseph Hansen Papers in the Hoover Institution Archives. The Edwin Eugene Herron Drawings were donated to the Hoover Institution Archives by the Anchor Foundation in 2004.

Scope and Content of Collection

The Edwin Eugene Herron Drawings consist of original line drawings appearing as illustrations in Intercontinental Press, a journal published in New York from 1963 to 1986 on behalf of the United Secretariat of the Fourth International, and edited until his death in 1979 by Joseph Hansen. From 1963 to 1968 its title was World Outlook. Almost all of the drawings are caricatures of contemporary world leaders and other public figures, and are frequently satirical in nature. The drawings are undated but are predominantly or entirely from the late 1960s and from the 1970s.
