Puck, a Gilded Age magazine published weekly from 1876 to 1918, helped transform American humor from tall tales to more urbane and literary humor through its bold cartoons. Join Ms. Trull, Assistant Curator at the Flagler Museum and lead curator of the exhibition, to learn more about the history of this groundbreaking magazine and its contributions to the advancement of American humor.
