Title supplied by cataloger. Norman Marsh was the comic artist who created the newspaper comic 'Dan Dunn', which started in 1932 in the LA Times. It ran for ten years, until Norman Marsh was drafted for the Military in 1942. Back in civil life, Marsh turned to King Features Syndicate and created 'Hunter Keene', a crackerjack detective with a strong resemblance to 'Dan Dunn' The strip lasted for only a year (April 1946 to April 1947) and was followed by Marsh's most successful strip, 'Danny Hale', which ran until 1962. The evening Herald-Express - which dates back to around 1871, and the morning Examiner - founded in 1903, merged to become the Herald Examiner newspaper in 1962. Photograph article dated October 24, 1947 reads, "Artist Norman Marsh And Cartoon Character, Danny Hale - Boy Adventurer of Pioneer Days to Join Family of Herald-Express Comics."
