Nelson Harding

Date of Birth 31-October-1879
Place of Birth New York City
(New York, United States of America, Area code 917)
Nationality United States of America
Profession Cartoonist
Nelson Harding was an American editorial cartoonist for the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. He won the annual Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning in 1927 and 1928, and remains in 2013 the only cartoonist so honored in back-to-back years. The particular cartoon cited in 1928, "May His Shadow Never Grow Less", was a tribute drawn at the end of the 1927 calendar year to flier Charles Lindbergh. Harding was born in New York City. His work was often politically conservative by the standards of his day. He took a leading role in opposition to what some New Yorkers considered to be a threat from Bolshevism in the late 1910s, during the so-called First Red Scare. His cartoons portrayed political radicals as bomb-throwers and terrorists.
