Two caricatures of the eleven judges on the panel of the International Tribunal for the Far East in Tokyo: Sir William Webb (1887-1972, Australian) was appointed the President of the Tribunal after the war, and; Joseph B. Keenan (1888-1954, United States of America), was appointed chief prosecutor of the trials by President Truman. The third caricature, Hideki Tojo (1884-1948), was a general in the Imperial Japanese Army and the 40th Prime Minister of Japan. These caricatures appeared regularly in the BCON Weekend magazine.
