Dick Tracy Daily Comic Strip Original Art, dated 12-12-31 (The Chicago Tribune, 1931)

Cartoonist Chester Gould, as a young boy, fell under the spell of Mutt and Jeff and Sherlock Holmes. In 1931, he created Dick Tracy, a strip that became nearly as successful as Bud Fishers, and featured a detective who became nearly as well-known as Conan Doyles.

Gould, the son of a publisher of a weekly newspaper, was born in Pawnee, Oklahoma in 1900. Gould once said "It was probably that influence which got me into the frame of mind to become a cartoonist." He migrated to Chicago in 192 (showing 500 of 3953 characters).
