Og, Son of Fire

The first stories of Og, a cave boy who lived half a million years ago, appeared on the pages of Boys' Life, the Boy Scout magazine, in December, 1921. They were written by Irving Crump [1887-1979], a writer and editor of Boys' Life, and were published as a book, "Og - Son of Fire," by Dodd, Mead & Co. in 1922.

More chapters came out in the magazine in 1924-25, and Dodd, Mead published "Og, Boy of Battle" in 1925. Og appeared in Boys' Life again from 1933-36, and "Og of the Cave People" was published in 1935.

A nation-wide radio show, "Og - Son of Fire" aired in 1934-35, hosted by Libby, accompanied by premiums and the publication of a Whitman "Big Little Book" in 1936... which was converted into a Dell comic in 1937. A final sequel, almost 45 years after the first, "Og - Son of Og," appeared in 1965, again preceded by chapters in Boys' Life.

Mog, the Mound Builder, the story of a prehistoric American boy, appeared in 1931.
