This online exhibit is based on a retrospective exhibit that appeared at the National Cartoon Museum in Boca Raton, Florida, in 1999, celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of "Pepper...and Salt". The original exhibit was curated by Charles Preston and the museum staff, and the content on this Web site is drawn from their work.

We are especially grateful to Charles Preston for more than fifty years of dedication and creativity as the editor of "Pepper...and Salt," reflected in this exhibition and in his gift of the Wall Street Journal Cartoon Collection to Baker Library.
