Author and artist Robert Leroy Ripley, born 1893 in Santa Rosa, California. While drawing sports cartoons for the New York Globe, he started cartooning odd facts and feats. This resulted in the daily Ripley's Believe It or Not strip, which he drew every day between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. -- upside down. A museum of Ripley's work can be seen in San Francisco.
