This button was illustrated by none other than Harry C. "Bud" Fisher (1885-1954). Fisher created "Mutt and Jeff," America's first daily comic strip. Fisher was born in Chicago, Illinois and attended the University of Chicago. He moved to San Francisco in 1907 and took a job as a journalist with the San Francisco Chronicle. It was while living in San Francisco that he developed the comic strip and illustrated a number of buttons for Hassan Cigarettes.
