In 1903, over 500 prominent St. Louisans forked over cash to appear in a local vanity cartoon book, St. Louisans as we see ‘em: cartoons and caricatures.  Nineteen of them were Washington University doctors, who appear in the slideshow above.

The seven cartoonists are pictured below.  The introduction to the book calls them “Little gods of ink pots.” Most of the seven worked for St. Louis newspapers and magazines.

The cartoonists: George McManus, S. Carlisle Martin, Lee F. Conrey, T. K. Hedric

The cartoonists: George McManus, S. Carlisle Martin, Lee F. Conrey, T. K. Hedrick, J. Gay Martin, Dick Wood and Edw. Grinham.

George McManus (1884-1954) worked first for the St. Louis Republican and is best known as the creator of Irish immigrant Jiggs and his wife Maggie, the central characters in a syndicated comic strip, Bringing Up Father. McManus’ successful strip was animated in 1916-1917 by Edward Grinham, another cartoonist for St. Louis as we see ‘em.

Edward Grinham was also one of the animators for a 1916-1917 film, Krazy Cat

S. Carlisle Martin drew The Weatherbird for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch from 1910 to 1932.  Under his pen, the Weatherbird took on his froglike quality.

John Gay Martin was Carlisle’s brother. The brothers were students at the school of Fine Arts at Washington University in 1888.

Lee F. Conrey (1883-1976) pursued a career in St. Louis and New York as a graphic illustrator of books, newspapers, and magazines like Cosmopolitan and McClure’s.

Tubman K. Hedrick was assistant editor of Reedy’s Mirror and wrote for the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

Dick Wood was an illustrator who worked for the art department at the St. Louis Globe-Democrat where he illustrated Theodore Dreiser’s stories and became Dreiser’s friend.
