Harry Lampert is best known as co-creator of the DC Comics superhero The Flash. Lampert began his career at the Fleischer studios and worked on comics - including Betty Boop, Popeye, and KoKo the Clown - wrote humor comic books, worked on gag cartoons for many periodicals - including The New York Times, the Saturday Evening Post, and Time - and taught cartooning at the New York School of Visual Arts. Harry Lampert's Droopy the Drew Field Mosquito was published in the Drew Field Echoes, the newspaper for the Drew Field Army Airbase (in Tampa, Florida). The Digital Collections contain the first strip, published in August 1942, and all following strips through February 3, 1944, as well as an article on Droopy from August 13, 1943..
The University of South Florida collected the Drew Field Echoes, and the Florida Digital Newspaper Library digitized them. The Florida Digital Newspaper Library allows for full-text searching and is openly accessible online. All of the digitized issues of the Drew Field Echoes are listed on this page in Florida Digital Newspaper Library. The individual comics are collected below for easier browsing. Each comic also has the date and volume information, which links to the specific pages where each Droopy strip can be found in its Drew Field Echoes issue.
