Nipper, by Doug Wright (1966)

Doug Wright was the creator of the long-running Canadian comic strip 'Doug Wright's Family'. Born in England, he came to Canada in 1938, where he began his cartooning career at the Montreal Standard. In 1948, he took over Jimmy Frise's 'Birdseye Center', which he retitled 'Juniper Junction'. Signing the strip with "DAW", he worked on it until 1968. Wright created his own strip, 'Nipper' for the Standard in 1949. When Wrigth moved from Montreal to Ontario to 1967, he retitled the strip 'Doug Wright's Family' and continued it until 1980. 2005 saw the inauguration of the Wright Awards, honouring special achievements in Canadian cartooning.
