Life magazine covers were on a variety of topics. Each issue had a theme that was introduced by the cover and reflected throughout the issue. The theme of this issue was the Inauguration of Theodore Roosevelt.
William Henry Walker was born on February 13, 1871, in Pittston, Pennsylvania He entered Kentucky University in 1888, transferring to the University of Rochester where he received a Bachelor of Science in 1891. Walker started drawing cartoons for Life in 1894 and became a full-time staff member four years later. Walker’s style was a combination of serious politics and humor, which fit well into the image Life wanted to promote. He used stereotypical analogies to make his point, and concentrated on the increasing diversity of America and around domestic political policy. He died in 1938.
