Missouri Physician Was Model for ‘Terry and the Pirates’ Character

The Jefferson City (Mo.) News Tribune has a story today about the inspiration for the “Doc” character in Milt Caniff’sTerry and the Pirates.” 

From the story:

Enloe’s military service, noted the previously cited article in Nutrition Today magazine, resulted in what the Mid-Missouri medical professional claimed his “greatest distinction” when he became the “prototype for the character ‘Doc’ in Milton Caniff’s comic strip ‘Terry and the Pirates,’ based upon his commando exploits in Burma.”
