Conditions Governing Use
The Jacksons moved to Chicago, where Chic studied at the Chicago Art Institute for one year. They then moved to Indianapolis in 1907, at which time Chic Jackson became an artist for the Indianapolis Star. The comic strip family that Jackson became known for, Roger Bean and family, premiered on April 22, 1913, with the Bean family arriving at Union Station in Indianapolis. The comic strip, known for what the Star described as its "homely and piquant Hoosier philosophy," appeared as far away as Schenectady, New York, where it ran for almost as many years as it did in the Indianapolis newspaper. Chic Jackson died at the age of 57 on June 3, 1934.
