Herb “Hype” Igoe was primarily known as a sports writer, but he was also an excellent cartoonist. But rather than flap my gums about him, I refer you to Yesterday’s Papers, which offers two biographical posts on the guy; part one and part two.
Igoe concentrated primarily on his writing, but seldom let his drawing nibs migrate to the back reaches of his desk drawer. He contributed both serious and funny sports cartoons to the Hearst papers, and did quite a few spot illustrations, too. What he rarely did was draw a series of comic strips — in fact he only did so once in his career that I know of (actually he has two series to his credit in the Guide listings, but the other was a panel cartoon).
Here is Mr. Dwindle, that one series. It ran in the New York American from December 16 1909 to January 10 1910. It ran as a replacement for the vacationing Bud Fisher’s Mutt and Jeff.
