Cartoon from the
Atlanta Constitution, July 1, 1925. The cartoon depicts the
view -- not uncommon -- that the famous Scopes trial, where a
school teacher was put on trial for teaching evolution, was
more of a publicity stunt for the town of Dayton, Tenn., than
Pinhead was a freak show character played by
William Henry Johnson,
an African-American man from New Jersey who had an oddly
shaped head. P. T. Barnum billed him as one of a tribe of
"missing links" discovered in Africa. He also advertised Zip
as Zip the What Is It.
