According to Lambiek Comiclopedia: "Jack Farr was a newspaper cartoonist whose work first appeared in the early 20th century. He was a staff artist with several New York and Boston newspapers, including the Boston Evening Journal and New York World, and eventually the US Feature Service syndicate. During his tenure with the papers, he developed comic strip and cartoon features like 'Little Willie' (1909), 'Mr. Jolt', ' Chubby' (1918-1920), and 'Bringing Up Bill' (1925). By the 1930s he was a cartoonist/gag artist for Judge, Life, Ballyhoo, Collier's and Cosmopolitan, among other magazines.

He was also present in the comic books of the 1940s, mostly for back-up features in mainly National and Street & Smith books. He created a whole new set of new characters up until the 1950s, including 'Bradley', 'Vitamin Vic', 'Donny the Dreamer', 'Gadget Man', 'Iron Munro', 'Romeo the Robot' and 'Three-Ring Binks', among many other characters."
