Dot and Dodo, by Dot Cochran

Dot Cochran was born in Toledo, Ohio, in 1901, as the daughter of the editor of The Toledo Bee. When she was in her early twenties, she came up with the strip 'Dot and Dodo', featuring the adventures of herself and the writer. It was followed by the charming strip 'Me and My Boyfriend', which ran until 1927, when Dot Cochran got married and moved to England. She continued to illustrate children's books.

Together with Ethel Hays, Virginia Huget, Fay King, Virginia Krausmann, Gladys Parker and Dorothy Urfer, Dot Cochran counts as a pioneer of female cartooning, gracing newspaper pages of the 1920s and 1930s with sophisticated and witty society girls.
