Panel Discussion: The Golden Age of Cartooning in Connecticut
In case you missed this “sold out” panel discussion. The room was full and not ideal for filming, but here is the recording with the shared family keepsakes and photos.
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.
