Meeting Mort Walker

The Beat blog posts a write up on bumping into Beetle Bailey creator Mort Walker and an update on the cartoon museum Mort has diligently worked on for so long.

As it stands now, the art that was once housed in the museum is sitting in storage in Stamford, CT. Walker told us that Ohio State (presumably the Cartoon Research LIbrary) has offered to take the artwork, but they have no place to display it and a sponsor is being sought for that. He estimates that he is out millions of dollars from his own pocket from his attempts to get the museum resettled.
