Samuels and Sylenz, by Bert Levy

Bert Levy was an American newspaper comic artist in the early twentieth century. He created 'Samuels and Sylenz' or 'The Silent Partners'. In 1916, he forfeited his annual salary and paid $2200 to break his contract from the strip, because he found the series offensive to his fellow Jews.
