Mort Walker, whose 'Beetle Bailey' was a comic-page staple for decades, dies at 94

Mort Walker, whose "Beetle Bailey" comic strip followed the exploits of a lazy G.I. and his inept cohorts at the dysfunctional Camp Swampy, and whose dedication to his art form led him to found the first museum devoted to the history of cartooning, died Jan. 27 at his home in Stamford, Connecticut. He was 94.
