Mosley’s focus was on flying and airplanes, he started taking flying lessons in 1932, and launched his aviation-themed Sunday page about a trio of flying students titled “On the Wing” in 1933; this strip was picked up by the Chicago Tribune-New York News Syndicate who changed the name to “The Adventures of Smilin’ Jack” later that same year. It became the most popular aviation adventure strip in the 1930s and 40s. In WWII, Mosley designed posters, insignias and program covers for flying events, and became a licensed pilot in 1936, eventually owning nine airplanes which flew on Civil Air Patrol anti-submarine flights. Mosley was inducted into the Oklahoma Cartoonist Hall of Fame after his death. See more material from these signers. See more listings in our ART & ARCHITECTURE (993).
