Harold Tucker Webster
Birth: Sep. 21, 1885
Parkersburg
Wood County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Sep. 22, 1952
Stamford
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA

Cartoonist. He drew various newspaper comics for 50 years, including "How to Torture Your Wife," "Life's Darkest Moment," and "Poker Portraits." His most famous and lasting character, 'Caspar Milquetoast', appeared in a comic called "The Timid Soul," and entered the English language as a slang term for meekness. He described 'Caspar' as "the man who speaks softly and gets hit with a big stick." Considered to have a knack of portraying everyday middle-class life with insight and humor, millions of newspaper readers enjoyed his work at it;s zenith. Webster's picture appeared on the cover of Time magazine on November 26, 1945, and his works have been reprinted as "The Very Best of H.T. Webster." (bio by: Jan Franco)
