Origin of Myron Moose

Look what I found in storage today. The first appearance of Myron Moose - December 20, 1968 - at the bottom of a letter I had written to my girlfriend at the time. I had gotten out of the Army a month earlier and was temporarily living in Bill Spicer's basement in Los Angeles. She still lived in New Jersey where I had been stationed at Ft. Monmouth. At the bottom of the letter there was about a 2" space left over so I filled it with this completely improvised comic strip. This is where it all began.

Wow! -- the birth of a legend!!

It's great that you have Myron's 'birth certificate' --- did your girlfriend send all your letters back to you???
