Indexer Notes

© 1949 by Stephen Schlesinger, Inc. Since Fred Harman used ghost artists on the Red Ryder comic book, this one could be by John Hampton. The horses seem similar to some in a Gene Autry Whitman book. The heavy inking may be an imitation of Fred Harman. He is credited to Red Ryder in Jerry Bails' Who's Who in the late 1940s. Art ID Steinar Ådland (December 2010).
