Who was Ad Carter?

August Daniel Carter was an American comic strip cartoonist who created the long-running Just Kids strip. He was known as Ad Carter, the signature he used on his strips.

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Carter was 11 years old when his mother died, a situation which led him into the work force as a youth. While employed as a Brooklyn Eagle reporter, he met the cartoonist Clare Briggs, who encouraged him to submit a comic strip to a syndicate. In 1916, Carter drew Our Friend Mush, a strip about a gang of kids.
