Gallagher Gags

When I was a kid I collected gag cartoons by various gag artists and pasted them in scrapbooks. One of the best was Gallagher. Which Gallagher was it though? There were two cartoonists of that name, brothers, John Gallagher and George [Gately] Gallagher. I think this is John Gallagher. George Gately had two great comic strips, the short-lived "Hapless Harry" and the much more successful "Heathcliff."


  1. I also collect John Gallagher cartoons, even have a 1973 Christmas card from him when we corresponded for a short time. Lost touch with him many years ago. Do you know if he is still alive and, if so, where he lives? Thanks.

  2. I can't say if he is still alive or not. there is a reference to him on Wikipedia but very little else.
