This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A cartoonist for the San Francisco "Chronicle" and "Bulletin", Russ Westover was born in Los Angeles and studied at the Mark Hopkins Art Institute. His syndicated strip, "Tillie the Toiler", was made into a movie in 1927. His work is at the Huntington Library in San Merino, California.

Edan Hughes, "Artists in California, 1786-1940"

Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:
Russel Westover started his career in 1904, when he got a job at the San Francisco Bulletin as a sports cartoonist. During his time with this paper, he also produced work for the Chronicle, Post and Oakland Herald.

After a few years he moved to New York, where he got a job at the New York Herald. There, he created his first comic, 'Snapshot Bill'. After Westover left the Herald, he created his most famous comic, 'Tillie the Toiler', and sold it to King Features Syndicate in 1921. In 1926, he added another strip to his Sunday page - 'The Van Swaggers'. Westover kept drawing both strips until his retirement in 1954.

He died in 1966, at the age of 80.
