Illustrator Harry C. "Bud" Fisher (1885-1954) 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.
