Coffee and Sinkers
Robert D. Carter began his newspaper career in Chicago, where he chronicled some of the major murder trials of the day as a sketch artist. He went to New York around 1901 to work for William Randolph Hearst's New York American. There he drew giant half-page cartoons to accompany the editorials of Arthur Brisbane.
His Sunday feature 'Just Little Ones' was published in The New York Herald from 17 August 1902 to 1 November 1903. From 7 June to 26 July 1903 his other comic, 'Coffee and Sinkers', was syndicated by the McClure Syndicate. He later switched to the Progressive Globe and then to the Sun. In late 1916, he moved to Philadelphia and drew for the Philadelphia Press, where he has done much to promote the Liberty Loan drives.
