George McManus was an artist known for several early 20th-century comic strips, including Rosie's Beau, Love Affairs of a Mutton Head, and Spareribs And Gravy. One of his most famous strips was Bringing Up Father, which featured Jiggs and his wife Maggie. In 1995, Bringing Up Father was included as part of the "Comic Strip Classics" series of commemorative U.S. postage stamps. The character Jiggs is also on the insignia of the U.S. Air Force's 11th Bomb Squadron, in which McManus served during World War I.
