Cartoonist. Born Richard Arthur Allan Browne, he was a popular comic artist best known for his newspaper comic strip characters. While serving in the US Army, he began producing work for the Engineer Corps and created a comic strip about The Woman's Army Corps titled, " Jenny Jeep". In the 1940s, he worked as an illustrator for Newsweek Magazine and for an advertising company, where he created the trademark logo for Chiquita Banana. By the 1950s, he teamed up the artist Mort Walker and created the comic strip "Hi & Lois", which was a spin off the "Beetle Bailey" strip featuring Beetle's sister, brother-in-law and their family. He was most noted for being the creator of the popular 1973, "Hagar the Horrible" strip about a mid-evil Viking which has appeared in hundreds of newspapers for decades. The comic is now produced by Browne's son Chris. Browne died at age 71 in Sarasota, Florida. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
