Issued August 24, 1912

John Tinney McCutcheon was born near South Raub, Indiana in May 1870. He graduated Purdue University in 1889 where he worked on the student newspaper and yearbook with a Bachelor of Science degree. He moved to Chicago, Illinois, where he worked at the Chicago Morning News in 1903.

Whereas HARPER’s is anti-Roosevelt, COLLIER’s is pro-Roosevelt. Portrayed is McCutcheon’s cartoon of Roosevelt’s Bull Moose fighting off the wolves of Bosses and Special Privilege.
