Physical Description: 1.0 cubic foot (3 archives boxes). Approximately 3000 cartoons. 
Scope and Content Note

Original drawings of cartoons, 1975-1996, 2003 and 2005-2011, by Lyle Lahey which were published in the Green Bay News-Chronicle daily newspaper and, after the paper ceased publication in 2005, online on a website. A feature of the Opinion page, the cartoons cover a wide variety of local, state, national, and international politics. Current events, social issues, political figures, celebrities, and sports are also included.

Major topics are noted in the contents list, but are by no means all-inclusive. Many additional topics are included in each folder. Cartoons reflect Lahey's views on many political and social issues, from local to international. Prominent examples are:

  • Middle East politics (particularly Iraq and the War on Terror after 9/11/2001)
  • Political figures (contemporary local, state, national, and international such as: Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt, Wisconsin Governors Jim Doyle and Scott Walker, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, John McCain, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, and Kim Jong-il)
  • United States economy (including job outsourcing, economic stimulus, and bailouts)
  • The environment (including oil drilling, oil spills, energy regulation, and global warming)
  • Healthcare and Medicare
  • Controversial legislation (voter identification, gun control, illegal immigration, same-sex marriage, and No Child Left Behind)
  • Political and religious groups (Tea Party and Westboro Baptist Church)
  • Celebrities

Cartoons from 2004 are not present in the collection.
