Walt McDougall’s birthday
Originally shared by Grand Comics Database
Walt McDougall (10 February 1858 – 6 March 1938, USA) was a cartoonist in the late 1800s and early 1900s. He produced some of the earliest full color newspaper comic strips, and was one of the first producers of regular political cartoons in American daily papers.
His satirical cartoons, published in outlets such as the New York World and The North American, were influential in the 1884 U.S. presidential election. Soon after, political cartoons became a fixture in American papers.
MdDougall also drew children’s comic strips, including ‘Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz’ written by L. Frank Baum. He has been called the first syndicated cartoonist based on his contributions to the weekly humor columns of Bill Nye.
