Og. Og was created by J. Irving Crump (Sangroo, Jack Straw) and appeared in nineteen stories in Boys’ Life and serials and five novels from 1921 to 1965, beginning with “Og - Son of Fire” (Boys’ Life, Dec. 1921); Og also appeared in a radio serial.

Og is a Neanderthal who begins humbly, as just another warrior tribesman, but whose superior brain and moral faculties enable him to become an inventor, a governor, and an agrarian reformer, teaching his fellow Neanderthals how to plant and harvest. Og, his girlfriend Nad, and his father Ru live and adventure among dinosaurs and have a number of vigorous battles with other tribesman and with sabertooth tigers, woolly rhinoceri, and the like.
