Clare A. Briggs

Briggs, Clare A., 1875–1930, American cartoonist, b. Reedsburg, Wis. He won a national reputation with the contributions he made to the Chicago Tribune from 1907 to 1914. From 1914 until his death his cartoons appeared in the New York Tribune syndicate. Among his best-known creations are "Mr. and Mrs." and "In the Days of Real Sport." The droll simplicity of his drawings was characteristic of American graphic humor of the 1920s.
