Throughout the 1960s these caricatures by "Luís" appeared in The Militant newspaper, published by the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) in the United States. Many also appeared in the SWP's monthly journal, International Socialist Review, and the magazine International Viewpoint published by the Fourth International. The caricatures he drew and the headlines from the articles they accompany, capture the worldwide political and social revolt of the era.

For information about Luís, please see a biographical sketch provided to the Holt Labor Library by his wife, Eunice Seligson, and sons, Eric and Mark Seligson.

The Holt Labor Library would like to thank Ruth Schein for her invaluable donation of the twenty-two original caricatures. We would also like to thank Lincoln Cushing for contributing his time and talents to digitize the collection.
