    Drawings and prints created by Alfred Bendiner, chiefly sketches made during his travels in England, Egypt, Gibraltar, Greece, Guatemala, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, the Middle East, Morocco, Paris, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey, the West Indies, and the United States, between 1920 and 1964. Also represented are Bendiner's interest in the circus, caricature, sports, his family, musicians, and dancers. A series of grotesques he designed as a student at the University of Pennsylvania are examples of his early work. Over 200 drawings, mainly very rough sketches, show activities on the home front in World War II. Two advertising campaigns showing many stages of the design process are examples of his work in advertising and a series of caricatures are a sample of work he did as a theatrical columnist for the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin. Drawings, prints, and ephemera collected by Bendiner focus on Mid-Atlantic artists and satire, especially 19th century French caricature. Also included are British satire, Asian drawings and prints, cartoons about World War I and international relations, historical prints, illustrations, and posters.
