Additional Information

The Chicago Herald and Examiner was founded in 1902 as the Chicago Morning American, then was renamed in 1907 as the Chicago Herald. It was renamed again when it merged with another paper to become the Chicago Herald-Examiner.

Felix the Cat got his start in 1919 in animated shorts, created by either Otto Messmer or Pat Sullivan or both, depending on whom you ask*. His popularity skyrocketed, so much so that he was introduced to the “funny pages” in 1923. Sunday strips continued through 1943, and a daily strip ran from 1927 to 1967. Felix continues to be revived and turns up in pop culture to this day.

*(the controversy continues to this day)
