This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Bertrand, Michigan, September 1891, John Striebel was raised in South Bend, Indiana. By age fourteen he was a political cartoonist for the South Bend Daily News, and the income from this job he used for tuition at the University of Notre Dame.

He then went to Chicago and became an advertising illustrator for the "Chicago Tribune". His first comic strip, 'Pantomime' was a feature for eight years, after which Striebel illustrated 'The Potters', a feature written by J. P. McEvoy. After illustrating 'Show Girl', which was considered too risque for the times, he moved to Woodstock in 1923 to study painting with Henry Lee McFee and Andrew Dasburg.

Before he could apply himself intensively to the study of painting, John Striebel found himself enmeshed in the 'Dixie Dugan' cartoon with J.P. McEvoy and soon 'Dixie' took precedence over all of his other endeavors which included cover illustrations for Liberty magazine. Dixie Dugan is a comic strip about a showgirl, modeled after Louise Brooks. Striebel continued to work on this strip until the early 1960s when Al Bare and Dave Huffine helped him with the illustrations when he became ill. His daughter, Margery Ann Huffine did all the lettering from the time she was fourteen years old.

John Striebel died on 22 May, 1962 in Woodstock, NY.

Note from Betty Shibbles, Orrington, Maine:

I have several of his original cartoon strips. He drew "Dixie Dugan" back in the 30's. His daughter did the lettering on them. I know all this because I lived across the road from his grand-son for a time. He's the one who gave me the "cells". They say "Reg. U.S. Pat. Office, McNaught Syndicate, Inc."
