Famed cartoonist, author and composer, educated at the University of California with a BS degree. He was a cartoonist for the San Francisco Chronicle between 1904 and 1905, the Bulletin from 1905-1907, and the New York Evening Mail from then to 1921, and thereafter his cartoons (which mainly pictured fantastic inventions and eventually caused his name to become a term for any complicated device) were syndicated. He directed a cartoon course at the Institute of Commercial Art, and won a Pulitzer Prize in 1948 for an editorial cartoon. He authored the books "Foolish Questions", "Chasing the Blues", "Is There a Doctor In the House?", "Soup to Nuts" (later filmed), and "Post-War World". Joining ASCAP in 1950, his chief musical collaborators included Bert Grant, Irving Caesar, and Ruth Patterson. His popular-song compositions include "You're Everywhere", "I'm The Guy", and "Willie the Whistling Giraffe".
