This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Gus Higgins  (Gustaf Henning Lindstrom)   (1863 – 1909)

Higgins, who was born in Stockholm, studied at the Art Academy there before he immigrated to America in 1879.  He settled in Chicago in 1885 and worked as a cartoonist and illustrator for The Chicago Tribune, among other publications, participating in a lively group of Swedish-American writers and artists in the 1880’s and 1890’s.  He claimed to be the only Swedish-American to exhibit a work in the Swedish pavilion in the 1904 world’s fair in St. Louis.  Higgins moved to McKeesport, Pennsylvania shortly after the turn of the century.
