Chester Gould received literally millions of requests for specialty illustrations of Tracy and his other popular characters throughout his lifetime. From charitable causes to professional organizations, schools and universities to individual fans Chester Gould shared Tracy’s message and iconic profile far and wide. This gallery is dedicated to sharing as many of these mostly never-before-published examples as possible with our members.
