About the Author

George McManus (1882-1954) began his newspaper career at age thirteen, working for five dollars a week at the St. Louis Republic. He moved to New York in 1903, began Bringing Up Father in 1913, and became one of the wealthiest cartoonists in the world during the 1930s. Like Jiggs, his comic strip hero, McManus never abandoned his old friends or his appreciation for life's simple pleasures. He parlayed two battling lovebirds named Maggie and Jiggs into a worldwide sensation, seen in five hundred newspapers, translated into nineteen different languages worldwide, and honored in 1995 with a U.S. postage stamp in the "Comic Strip Classics" collection.
