Boston Daily Globe, January 13, 1926. If you've ever typified some wimpy dude as a "Caspar Milquetoast," you were unwittingly quoting the work of cartoonist H.T. Webster, whose nationally syndicated strip "The Timid Soul" chronicled —without a shred of sympathy— the tribulations of this passive and chinless nebbish. Seems wholly in keeping with the sad bastard's luck that he should be forgotten even as his name lives on.
