TITLE: Anchorage Daily News Dunlap-Shohl Political Cartoon Collection



Dates: circa 1982-2008

Extent: 19 boxes; 19 linear feet

Language and Scripts: The collection is in English.

Name of creator(s): Peter Dunlap-Shohl

Administrative/Biographical History:
Peter Dunlap-Shohl drew political cartoons for the Anchorage Daily News for over 25 years. In
2008, he won the Howard Rock Tom Snapp First Amendment Award from the Alaska Press

Scope and Content Description:
The collection contains the original artwork for Peter Dunlap-Shohl’s editorial cartoons,
published in the Anchorage Daily News (ADN) circa 1982-2008, as well as unfinished and
unpublished cartoons. The original strips from the first year of Dunlap-Shohl’s comic, Muskeg
Heights, are also included; the strip ran in the ADN from April 23, 1990 to October 16, 2004.
The majority of works are pen-and-ink drawings, with a smaller number of pencil sketches,
watercolors, scratchboard engravings, and computer-generated art. Cartoons created after
about 2004 were born digital; the collection includes digital files of cartoons dated from
February 1, 2005-October 5, 2008. Some born-digital cartoons are only available in paper
copies. The collection also includes some examples of original graphic art created by Dunlap-
Shohl for specific projects; these are generally undated and oversized. There is one

photograph in the collection, of Peter Dunlap-Shohl at the Anchorage Daily News offices. See
Detailed Description of Collection for more information.

Arrangement: The arrangement is primarily chronological, with some groupings by size and
subject matter (for example, graphic art).

Physical Access: Original items in good condition.

Technical Access: No special equipment is needed to access the materials.

scattered holdings for 1997 and 1998. There are no cartoons for January 1999 or July 2002.
