On this day, July 26, 1934,  cartoonist and animator Winsor McCay died in Brooklyn, New York. As a young man McCay created popular comics strips including Little Nemo in Slumberland. Inspired by flip books, McCay realized that his cartoons could be transformed into moving pictures. Soon he incorporated this feature into his vaudeville act creating such features as Gertie the Dinosaur in 1914.
