Knox County Campaigns (Digitized),
Series IV: Knoxville and Knox County presents a wide swath of local history through the lens of humor and quirky insights. There are cartoons about political corruption, bootlegging and liquor raids, mayors and other local politicians, and the long history of annexation and government consolidation. There are many cartoons about the 1982 World’s Fair, especially the less savory aspects of the process and event. Besides problems such as air quality and road construction, there are celebrations of charitable giving and the Dogwood Arts Festival. And, of course, the intersection if Church and State Streets gets a cartoon poke.
