Wiki

Ernest Paul Bushmiller, Jr. (23 August 1905 - 15 August 1982) was an American cartoonist, best known for creating the long-running daily comic strip Nancy.

Born in The Bronx, New York, Bushmiller was the son of immigrant parents, and his father was an artist. Bushmiller quit school at 14 to work as a copy boy at the New York World newspaper. At night, he took art classes at the National Academy of Design.

In 1925, cartoonist Larry Whittington, creator of the comic strip Fritzi Ritz, left to produce another strip, Mazie the Model. Bushmiller then took over Fritzi Ritz, ghostwriting it, before eventually taking over officially. Bushmiller's name did not appear on the strip until May 1926. The character of Fritzi was modeled after Bushmiller's fiance, Abby Bohnet. The couple, who married in 1930, had no children.
