Thomas Nast

University of North Carolina Press

This concluding chapter describes Thomas Nast in the aftermath of the election of 1884. Despite Nast's rapprochement with Harper's during the campaign of 1884, the underlying conflict had not been resolved. After January of 1887, Nast's cartoons stopped appearing in Harper's Weekly. Nast then resumed his work for Harper's in 1895, three years after George William Curtis died. In addition, when Curtis died, Nast was publishing his own paper, Nast's Weekly. When Nast's paper failed, Harper's began to publish Nast's drawing again. The chapter also discusses Nast's acceptance of the consular post at Guayaquil, Ecuador, where he contracted yellow fever and died on December 7, 1902.
