Edmundo "Mundo" Searle was a Chilean cartoonist who specialized in society and turf cartoons.
Searle was born in Valparaiso, and studied at the San Luis English School of Limache and at the Colegio de los Sagrados Corazones of Valparaiso, where he graduated in 1908. He started his career as cartoonist in 1909, working for the Sucesos magazine and the newspaper La Union de Valparaiso. From early on he signed his work as "Mundo". He married Esperanza Artaza, and had two children: Edmundo and Perla. In 1917 he emigrated to the US, where he worked for the New York Herald, but soon returned to Chile in 1918.
Between 1928 and 1931 Searle moved with his family to London, where he worked for The Bystander, Daily Sketch, Illustrated London News and Tatler. He was an ardent turfman and a frequent visitor to Ascot, Epsom and Windsor, becoming a close friend of Edward VIII, then Prince of Wales.
