"Doug Larson" was a columnist and editor for the List of newspapers in Wisconsin/Door County Advocate (1953-1964) and wrote a daily column for the Green Bay Press-Gazette (1964-1988) — both Wisconsin-based newspapers. The column was originally syndicated through United Media under the title "Senator Soaper Says"; Larson took over authorship in 1980. Previously, it had been written by William E. Vaughan/Bill Vaughn of the Kansas City Star.
