Fisher, Bud

▪ American cartoonist
byname of  Harry Conway Fisher  
born April 3, 1884/85, Chicago, Ill., U.S.
died Sept. 7, 1954, New York, N.Y.

      American cartoonist and creator of the comic strip “Mutt and Jeff.”

      After attending the University of Chicago, Fisher worked as a journalist in San Francisco, where for the San Francisco Chronicle he originated “Mr. Mutt” in 1907. Soon he added Jeff, the short one of the pair and usually the loser in their encounters. Originally a sports cartoonist, Fisher gave his strip a racetrack flavour, but it soon became a general comic. He moved to New York in 1909. During World War I he was an artist with the Canadian forces in London. A racehorse enthusiast, he at one time owned 50 Thoroughbreds. From 1932 on, the strip was drawn mostly (wholly after Fisher's death) by ghost artist Al Smith (Albert Schmidt; 1902–86).
