About Bill Mauldin

He created one of America’s most famous cartoons: the weeping statue of Abraham Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial after President Kennedy’s assassination.

Mauldin worked at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch from 1958 to 1962.

Mauldin’s Stars and Stripes cartoons about World War II won the 1945 Pulitzer Prize, making him the youngest person to be awarded this prize.

Mauldin died on January 22, 2003 at the age of 81.

Facts about the rare cartoon:

The cartoon is a critical commentary on the U.S.’s relations with the Dominican Republic.

It depicts the family of assassinated dictator Rafael Trujillo entering the U.S. with its $200 million fortune.

The Kennedy Administration ousted the Trujillo family from the Dominican Republic after opposition groups, who received guns from the CIA, assassinated Rafael Trujillo.

The U.S. Marines installed Trujillo as the leader of the Dominican Republic during the 1920s. By the 1960s, Trujillo had imprisoned thousands of political prisoners and began defending Fidel Castro.
