Oscar Comics #2Cartoonist Lin R. Streeter began his career in the comic book industry in 1939, when he worked at Harry "A" Chesler's studio "shop", penciling and inking a number of features. The next year, he started drawing comic books for Archie Publications over the three years that followed (Captain Flag, The Comet, Danny In Wonderland, Fu Chang, Gallahad, Kalthar, Mr. Satan, Rocket And The Queen Of Diamonds, The St. Louis Kid, Stacey Knight, M.D., Wilbur and Zamboni, The Miracle Man. In 1941, Streeter worked on 'Pat Patriot, America's Joan of Arc', a female heroine that appeared in Daredevil Comics.

During World War II, Lin Streeter worked with acclaimed American short story author John Cheever - sometimes known as "the Chekhov of the suburbs" - who remembered the Golden Age cartoonist as being "a very nice guy who once had had a studio near their apartment in the Village”. Cheever was transferred to Special Services a couple days later and declared editor of a weekly regimental newspaper, The Double Deucer. Paired with a cartoonist, Lin Streeter (best known for “Pat Patriot, America’s Joan of Arc”), Cheever tried to make the newspaper as entertaining as possible, spoofing such hackneyed features as the Inquiring Reporter (“I don’t know how the Major will take it, but I’m sure the men will like it”). Meanwhile he almost fell in the line of duty. On a cold day in February, an officious lieutenant insisted on helping him build a fire in the Recreation Hall, near the newspaper office, and ended up burning the place to the ground. With flames licking at his feet, Cheever ran out the back door with a typewriter and the stencil for the latest Double Deucer; which became “a special fire issue”: when copies arrived from the printer, he and Streeter singed the bundle with a blowtorch as if it bad been yanked from the fire in the nick of time.Oscar Comics #10

During and after working on staff at the Sangor Studio in the mid-40s , Streeter freelanced for Better Publications (Commando Cubs, Grim Reaper, Jimmy Cole, Miss Masque and Phantom Detective). In the late 40s and early 50s, he worked for Marvel Comics (Blonde Phantom, Mitzi, Oscar, Patsy Walker, Sub-Mariner, Sun Girl and various adventure and romance stories) and Ace Periodicals (Ernie, Hazel Of Hollywood, Stella The Starlet and various crime and romance stories). From 1950 through 1954, Streeter drew many stories for the American Comics' Group, appearing in the titles Adventures Into The Unknown, Forbidden Worlds, Lovelorn, Operation: Peril, Out of the Night, Romantic Adventures and Skeleton Hand.

Streeter contributed to Gilberton's Classics Illustrated series (Frank Buck's 'Fang and Claw') as well as Classics Illustrated Jr.

Lin Streeter also worked on two syndicated newspaper comic strips: Gripes and Grins (1945) and Sergeant Stony Craig (1946, Bell Syndicate).  Sgt. Stony Craig was credited to Frank H. Rentfrow and Lt. Col. Don Dickson, The strip was started in September 1937 and was drawn by Dickson until 1940, when the Marine Corps Reserves was mobilized. After that it was taken over by Gerald Bouchard from 1940 to March 1945. Bill Draut is credited for 1945 and Lin Streeter for 1946.
