John Brown Walker

John Brown Walker, born in Washington County, Pennylvania, in 1815 and died in 1908 in Michigan, had strong ties to Geauga County, Ohio. Possibly trained as a stencil cutter, Brown spent long stretches of time during the 1880s in the Burton, Ohio, area where he produced fanciful cut-paper designs for friends and acquaintances. His work was the subject of a retrospective exhibition and catalog, titled Your Wellwisher, J.B. Walker, at Michigan State University.
