The Landon School of Illustrating and Cartooning.

The mail-order cartoon course taken by Carl Barks, Floyd Gottfredson, Roy Crane, Milton Caniff and many others.

In the early 1900s, Landon's pioneering mail-order correspondence course was made possible by a confluence of events: The exponential growth of automobile usage and production, making delivery of mail faster and more reliable; the innovation of industrial printing presses which helped fuel the rapid expansion of newspapers and readers; and finally, the resulting celebrity of cartoonists, inspiring an army of young boys who desired to become one.
