Joseph A. Lemon was one of the main cartoonists for the McClure Syndicate Sunday sections. His best known creation ish 'Willy Cute', which appeared in The Daily Reporter from 1903 until 1905, after which it was continued for a few months by Ed Carey. Lemon usually signed his work with a rather undecipherable signature, which resembled a starr. He also created the comics 'Hop Lee' (about a Chinese, 1904), 'How would you like to be John?' (1903 - 1905), 'Humpty Dumpty' (1904), 'Professor Bughouse' (1904) and 'The Adventures of Dennis O' Shaugnessy' (1902).
