Footnotes

  • James Swinnerton has been credited with creating the first serialized cartoon character in an American newspaper when he drew his comic bears for William Randolph Hearst's San Francisco Examiner in 1892. In 1896, Hearst took the young man with him to New York where Swinnerton continued as one of the major cartoonists for the Journal-American's Sunday funnies. He later became a distinguished landscape painter of the Southwest.
