Summary

“I Believe in Giving Every Man a Square Deal”
Cartoonist: Edward Windsor Kemble
Source: Harper's Weekly
Date: March 9, 1912, p. 7

During the anthracite coal strike of 1902, President Theodore Roosevelt declared his intent to negotiate a “square deal” (i.e., a fair settlement) for labor, management, and the American public. Thereafter, his administration’s domestic agenda became known as the Square Deal. In this Harper’s Weekly cartoon, Roosevelt is depicted as a mugger preparing to steal the Republican nomination from President William Howard Taft by hitting his rival, who appears in elegant evening dress, with the “square deal” of a brick.
