Fact: Ansco named one of its early box camera product lines "Buster Brown". That was the answer on Kodak. The concurrent was successful with camera's named "Brownie". Whilst "Brownie" should remind of the funny "Brownies", the protagonists of Palmer Cox's cartoons, "Buster Brown" was a comic strip character of Richard Felton Outcault.
