From Detroit Free Press Obituary, written by Curt Haseltine:
Floyd "Nick" Nixon was the Free Press art director from 1910 until he retired in 1958. His unmistakable style decorated countless Edgar A. Guest poems and was epitomized in the character of "Iffy the Dopester," the brainchild of the late Free Press Editor, Malcolm W. Bingay, which appeared regularly on the editorial page. Caricature was the joy of Nick's life and he happily seized on any physical peculiarities to limn his unmistakable portraits of the great, the near-great and just folks.
Floyd Nixon also served in the U.S. Army during World War I in Brest, France, as did his wife Gladys. Floyd and Gladys were married in Portland, Maine by Floyd's father, the Rev. William Gay Nixon D.D.
Floyd married Gladys Evelyn Stover, daughter of Charles Woodbury Stover and Caroline Holbrook Reed, on 8 Oct 1921 in Portland, Maine. (Gladys Evelyn Stover was born on 3 Nov 1892 in Portland, Maine and died on 25 Jun 1977 in Grosse Pointe, Michigan.)
