Sydney Smith

(Bloomington, IL, 1877 - 1935, Harvard, IL)

From Who Was Who in American Art: "Best known as the creator of the comic strip "The Gumps," published in Europe, Hawaii, Canada, Australia, and the U.S. He had produced "Old Doc Yak" and at least three other series of cartoon characters before "The Gumps" in 1917. In 1922, Smith signed a $1,000,000 contract for "The Gumps" to extend over a ten-year period--the largest figure ever guaranteed a similar feature at that time."
