George Baker (May 22, 1915 - May 5, 1975) was a cartoonist who became prominent during World War II as the creator of the popular comic strip, The Sad Sack. Born in Lowell, Massachusetts, Baker grew up in Rock Island, Illinois and Chicago. In Chicago, he attended Lane Technical High School, and graduated from Roosevelt High School, where he played baseball and drew pictures for the high school annual. After six weeks of art training in a night school, he got a job as a commercial artist "but soon grew tired of drawing pots and pans for newspaper advertisements."show more
