Panel Discussion: The Golden Age of Cartooning in Connecticut
Thursday, March 7, 2019 — 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Chance Browne (son of Dik Browne), Cullen Murphy (son of Jack Murphy), and Brian, Greg and Neal Walker (sons of Mort Walker) pay tribute to their fathers – and to an extraordinary community of cartoonists, creators of such classics as Beetle Bailey, Rip Kirby, Hagar the Horrible, Hi and Lois, Sam & Silo, Big Ben Bolt, Nancy, On Stage, Juliet Jones, and Prince Valiant. They will recollect notable experiences and observations from this golden era: telling stories and sharing rare artwork and behind-the-scenes photos. It promises to be a revealing glimpse into a time when cartooning flourished in the leafy suburbs of Connecticut.
