Alfred Gerald Caplin, better known as Al Capp, was an American cartoonist and humorist best known for the satirical comic strip Lil Abner, which he created in 1934 and continued writing and drawing until 1977. He also wrote the comic strips Abbie an Slats and Long Sam. He won the National Cartoonists Societys Reuben Award in 1947 for Cartoonist of the Year, and their 1979 Elzie Segar Award for his unique and outstanding contribution to the profession of cartooning. Comic strips dealt with northern urban experiences until the year Capp introduced Lil Abner, the first strip based in the South. Although Capp was from Connecticut, he spent 43 years teaching the world about Dogpatch, reaching an estimated 60 million readers in over 900 American newspapers and 100 foreign papers in 28 countries. M. Thomas Inge says Capp made a large personal fortune on the strip and had a profound influence on the way the world viewed the American South.
