New Orleans Architects 1917

In 1917, the Roycrofters printed a compendium of William K. Patrick & Associates' caricatures of Louisiana notables. These included New Orleans architects H. Jordan MacKenzie, W.L. Stevens and Leon C. Weiss (shown above).

To view more of the vignettes, see Club Men of Louisiana in Caricature. East Aurora, NY: The Roycrofters, 1917. There are multiple copies in Tulane University Libraries, and the work is also digitized and available via the Internet Archive.

W.K. Patrick was a cartoonist who patented his comic duck avatar in 1911. He worked for the Times-Picayune and the Fort Worth Star Telegram.
