Pa's Son in Law 1925, by Duke Wellington

Charles H. Wellington started his career in 1908, working for the Memphis News-Scimitar. His style attracted the attention of newspaper tycoon Henry Stoddard, who offered him a job at the New York Evening Mail. Wellington created a strip called 'Pa's Imported Son-In-Law', which changed its title to 'That Son-In-Law of Pa's!' when it moved to the Tribune newspaper. Later on, it was renamed once again to 'Pa's Son-In-Law'. The strip ran until Wellington's death in 1942.
