Although he is best known today for Happy Hooligan (which we’ve been reprinting examples of recently) Frederick Opper was responsible for a number of popular strips in the early 20th century. Here’s an example of Frederick Opper’s strip And Her Name Was Maud from September 30, 1906. This one has a header by Gus Mager of Sherlocko the Monk and Hawkshaw the Detective fame. Warning: this strip contains the sort of offensive racial stereotypes that were typical of the era… if such things offend you I suggest you avoid viewing this. Click the image to read the strip.
