Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. David Breger (April 15, 1908 - January 16, 1970) was an American cartoonist who created the syndicated Mister Breger (1945-1970), a gag panel series and Sunday comic strip known earlier as Private Breger Abroad and G.I. Joe. The series led to widespread usage of the term "G.I. Joe" during World War II and later. Dave Breger was his signature and the byline on his books. During World War II, his cartoons were signed Sgt. Dave Breger. Growing up in Chicago, where he was born of native Russian parents, Breger had encounters with the local gangsters while working at his father's sausage factory. He went to a technical high school, where he drew for the school paper. He studied architectural engineering at the University of Illinois and then transferred to Northwestern University, where he edited the humor magazine while studying pre-med and psychology. He had no schooling in art or cartooning.
