Tar Baby (1911-1912)

This poem comes from an early 1912 issue of the Tar Baby. Additional issues can be found in the North Carolina Collection at the call number C378 UQt2.


Tar Baby. vol. 1 no. 1 - 4. September 1911 - May 1912. Irregular.

This magazine contains cartoons, jokes, and occasional commentaries on Carolina sports. This appears to be the first of the long line of campus humor magazines. The Tar Baby was resurrected under the same name seven years later.
