W. R. Bradford was the author of several newspaper features in the early 20th Century. One of his notable creations was 'Fitzboomski the Anarchist', a black humor strip inspired by the Russian Revolution, that appeared in the Philadelphia North American from October to November 1905. It was revived as 'Fizzboomski the Anarchist' in 1907 with new tensions in Russia.
