Edgar F Wolfe

Working under the name of “Jim Nasium,” Wolfe was a nationally known baseball writer and cartoonist for the Philadelphia Inquirer from 1907 to 1922. He got to know the players by working out with them in spring training and morning practices during the season. He was a scout for the Phillies for two seasons and wrote many articles for The Sporting News in the 1920s and 1930s, analyzing the game and the players. His articles were often accompanied by his own cartoons.
