"Take the belt, old sport! We can't any of us talk in your class" / L.M. Glackens.
1 photomechanical print : offset, color.
Illustration shows a group of boxers standing behind a large boxer who is giving Arctic explorer Robert E. Peary a jeweled belt labeled "Championship"; boxers are known for their pre-fight taunting bluster. Papers, probably from Peary's lectures, extend from a pocket of his fur coat, they state "Cook's a faker", "I'll show him up", and "Bluff".
