'It's important to keep him on a short leash'
This is the original newspaper negative by political cartoonist Tom Engelhardt featuring the cartoon printed in The St. Louis Post-Dispatch on April 11, 1980. In the cartoon, a giant is carrying a Big Business briefcase in one hand and a leash in the other hand. He is commenting, 'It's important to keep him on a short leash.' The leash is attached to a many carrying a Congress case and that man is holding the leash of a dog with the label FTC. This is a one of a kind item and the proceeds help benefit The State Historical Society of Missouri's Engelhardt Cartoon Collection.
