Sport and The Kid by John "Dok" Hager, cartoonist for Seattle Daily Times, 1913 first edition.


Written and illustrated by J.R. "Dok" Hager. First edition, 1913. Lowman & Hanford Co, Seattle.

John "Dok" Hager (1858 - 1932) was a dentist turned cartoonist whose comic strips ran in the Seattle Daily Times for over 30 years. In 1909, Hager created a cartoon that ran adjacent to the daily weather report. The main character was known as the Umbrella Man, or "Sport", based on a beloved if eccentric Seattle personality, Robert W. Patten. He next created a comic strip called Dok's Dippy Duck, which starred a cigarette-smoking, mischief-making duck who traveled around the world and commented on current events.
