Duncan Macpherson Fonds

Already recognized as a reference for the study of editorial cartoons in Canada, the McCord Museum was pleased in 2013 to make a major acquisition in this field. Thanks to the generosity of the R. Howard Webster Foundation and the Toronto Star newspaper, the Museum purchased and made available online 751 caricatures and illustrations created by artist Duncan Macpherson (1924-1993), who is considered one of Canada’s best political cartoonists.
