Scope and Contents: The collection contains sketchbooks, original drawings, and photomechanically reproduced drawings by John Fischetti. A small amount of work by other artists is also in the collection, including: Pat Oliphant, Bill Mauldin, and Walt Scott.

Writing on his editorial cartoon sketchbooks in his autobiography, Fischetti stated "Before 1961 I used to doodle ideas on the backs of envelopes, scraps of paper and yellow copy paper... Since even half-formed ideas are invaluable, I decided to use layout pads for the gestating periods. By dating each page, it turned out to be a sort of log of historical and personal events" Zinga, Zinga, Za!, pg. 98.
