by Matthew Price Published: November 20, 2011

Tooday is the birthday of perhaps the most accomplished Oklahoma cartoonist of all time, Chester Gould.  The creator of Dick Tracy, Gould was born in Pawnee, Oklahoma on Nov. 20, 1900.  He died on May 11, 1985.

You can see impressive items from Chester Gould’s career at the Oklahoma History Center, where the Uncanny Adventures of Okie Cartoonists exhibit continues for about another month.
