Prominent Ottumwans in caricature
Starting in late 1913 and continuing into the spring of 1914, the Ottumwa Courier created and published caricature portraits of more than 90 prominent men of the community. But who were these movers and shakers? How did they impact their city at the time — and continue to do so more than 100 years later?
Contains all 90 caricature portraits as published in 1912-1913, along with additional materials about each businessman’s career and impact on the community.
