BALL WALTER A TRIBUTE TO

BALL WALTER A TRIBUTE TO

This exhibit, called Comic Relief was mounted by Robert MacMillan, June 25 to September 19, 1994 at the Brant County Museum in Brantford Ontario. It was an exhibition of Ball’s work plus the cartoons in which contemporary cartoonists integrated Elmer and Myrtle with their own characters. At this time Walter was too ill to attend and so a VHS tape on which the participating cartoonists congratulated Walter on his achievements was made and given to Walter at the York Central Hospital in Richmond Hill, Ontario. He died 18 February 1995 .
