Jed Cooper, American Scout by writer Lloyd Wendt and artist Dick Fletcher. The strip was hobbled by running as a third-page Sunday-only feature, so the story moved along at a very slow pace.

Jed Cooper was just one of a pretty long list of ChiTrib adventure pages/strips of the 40s and 50s that just never seemed to be able to attract a newspaper clientele. Nevertheless, the Trib and partner NY Daily News kept some of these pages/strips going for years despite the lack of interest. This one made it over a decade, starting on November 13 1949 and ending March 26 1961.
