Pa's Son in Law 1925, by Duke Wellington

Charles H. Wellington started his career in 1903, working as an illustrator for the St. Louis Republic. By 1908, he was 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.
