Biography   William Gould


Born in NYC on Dec. 6, 1911.  After working briefly for the New York Graphic, Gould moved to Los Angeles in 1930. There he freelanced as a sports and feature cartoonist for various syndicated papers.  In 1934 he was the creator of "Red Barry" but abandoned the comic strip due to conflict with his editors.  Following service in WWII, he worked in Los Angeles as a scriptwriter and reporter until his death on Feb. 25, 1978.
