Additional Information: 

Thomas E. Powers (1870-1939) was born on the Fourth of July in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Powers was a nationally recognized cartoonist who worked at the New York Evening World, a William Randolph Hearst (1863-1951) newspaper.  Powers's most famous comic strip was "Joy and Gloom."  The figure drawn for the button looks like it could be the back of Gloom's head.  Both Hearst and Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) considered Power to be their favor cartoonist.
