Obscurity of the Day: Mr. Kub Reporter

A fellow named Rollins, who didn't bother to sign his first name and never did another series, contributed Mr. Kub Reporter to the pages of the Boston Herald's comic section for a whole four weeks, March 20 to April 10 1904. Here he recounts the classic prank played on young newspaper reporters. Perhaps Mr. Rollins himself, as an artist, was never a victim, but you can bet he saw this stunt pulled in the newsroom.

Thanks to Cole Johnson for the scan!
