Artist, teacher, writer, politician.
Kalamazoo’s Guy Lockwood was all these.
Lockwood’s early 20th century Socialist Party views were the focus of his political cartoons. His confrontational work challenged the American status quo in his regular pamphlet entitled “The Billy Goat”.
Guy Lockwood was soon butting heads in the political arena. He became one of the first Michigan Socialists voted to office. Guy served as a Kalamazoo alderman after his 1912 election.
