1903 Chicago Chronicle Comics; Part III

Here are two more of the comic strip series from the Chronicle, Musical Maurice by Fred Lewis and Red Squab by Charles Lederer. Lederer kicked around in Chicago newspaper circles for many years and was also a long-time seller of 'how to draw' books. Lederer contributed more material to the Chronicle section than the others on staff, and usually did the cover drawing for the magazine.

Notice that the Red Squab story is to be continued next Sunday - that's a real rarity in such an early comic strip.


Any relation to Charles Lederer the theatre and movie writer?
Hi Ger -
According to imdb, that Lederer was born in 1906, so it couldn't be the same guy.
