Alice Harvey is celebrated as one of the New Yorker’s great cartoonists, her demure sophisticated ladies with acid tongues a constant popular feature of the magazine’s pages from its inception until the early 1940s. But she also took her turn in the newspapers with a delightful feature titled Sister Susie. This suburban comedy featuring real kids showing all their warts was unusually frank and unvarnished look at children for the Sunday papers of the time.

Sister Susie was a Chicago Tribune-New York News Syndicate product that found its way into very few papers other than Daily News itself. It began running there on January 26 1936 and the last episode is reported to be on August 30 1936.

32 strips 1936
