Little Lulu Comic Book Adult Character Names

When I re-read Little Lulu comics over the past few years I noticed, for the first time, the names of the adults in the stories. Oh, I had always chuckled at Mr. McNabbem's name for the truant officer and Professor Clef's name for Tubby's violin teacher, but then I noticed Lulu's piano teacher's name, Miss Treble. So I began to pay attention to the names of some of the other adults. Soon, I was fascinated with them and began to make a list of the names.

Below is the list I have compiled of some of the unique names of the adults in the Little Lulu comics. If you know of others, I'd love the add them to this list. You can see images from the comics of these characters by clicking on the numbers in the right column.
