09/01/47... Other than having it feature one of the iconic villains, I cannot imagine a nicer example of a Gould Tracy strip.
Family Foursome & Colonel Potterby
03/31/35 ... CHIC YOUNG (Murat Young) (1/9/1901 - 3/14/1973, USA) Encouraged by his painting mother, Murat Young studied art in Chicago, New York and Cleveland. He started his career in 1920, working for the Newspaper Enterprise Association. His first strip was called The Affairs of Jane. In 1922 he created Beautiful Bab, another girl comic. He was employed by King Features Syndicate in 1924. In 1925, he signed the name 'Chic' Young for the first time, in the strip Dumb Dora. Other strips Chic Young created are The Family Foursome and Colonel Potterby and the Duchess, but his most famous is the internationally-known Blondie, which he drew from 1930 until his death in 1973. In 1948 he received the Reuben Award, the first of his many awards that came his way. Chic Young's style and themes have inspired many artists, comic strips, and even sitcoms.

Mutt and Jeff
01/05/23 ... Brother of George "Bring Up Father" McManus, Charles had a brief career as a cartoonist.
08/14/68 ... Little Orphan Annie was one of the most successful of the early newspaper strips. The strip was known for both its art and its conservative political point of view. When Harold Gray passed away (08/06/68), his family donated most of his original art to the Boston University Library. So, it is very hard to find any of his original Annie art. From 1967 on, the strip was the work of studio artists, the most noted being Tex Blaisdell; I assume this is a Blaisdell.
