Dumm, Edwina (b. 1893)

American cartoonist. Born in Sandusky, Ohio, in 1893; attended the Art Students League of New York.

Born into a newspaper family, Edwina Dumm took a correspondence course in cartooning, after which she was hired as a political cartoonist for a Columbus, Ohio, newspaper. Around 1918, while attending the Art Students League of New York, she was recruited by the George Matthew Adams Syndicate to create a comic strip about a boy and his dog. The result was Cap Stubbs and Tippie, for which she became well known. She also drew a dog cartoon called Sinbad for Life magazine and illustrated a one-column feature, Alec the Great, written by her brother.


Original drawings for Dumm's comics are housed in the Ohio State University Library for Communications and Graphic Arts.
