Charles R. Snelgrove was a staff artist at the Toronto Evening Telegram for eight years. He was the artist of the 'Robin Hood and Company' newspaper comic, which was the only Canadian adventure comic of its time. The strip ran from 1935 to 1940. The comic was written by Ted McCall, who had already created 'Men of the Mounted' with artist Harry Hall from 1933 to 1935. 'Robin Hood' was syndicated and was published in Canadian, US and some European newspapers. After Snelgrove's death in late 1939, the comic was briefly continued by artist Syd Stein.
