Lost And Found Part II

Here’s the other series that ran in the San Francisco Bulletin in 1903. The ‘official’ title, the one used most often, was The Adventures of Ping and Pong. This one’s by a fellow named R.O. Yardley. He not only did this series but a lot of the one-shot color comics that ran in the Bulletin that year. This series ran from February 1 to March 15, missing only one week in that interval.

Tomorrow we’ll have one last 1903 Bulletin item – probably the very first newspaper appearance by a cartoonist whose name would appear on the nation’s comics pages daily for the next half century.

  1. The Haggin Museum has 1,200 original drawings by Yardley–all from his DO YOU REMEMBER series that ran from shortly after he joined the STOCKTON RECORD in 1922 up through his retirement in 1952. These were later republished in the late 1960s as BYGONES. We also have an illustrated bio of Ralph, along with a number of print examples of some of his SF comics and Sunday Supplement work.
