Press Release



Tom Gill, who drew "The Lone Ranger" comic books, died on Monday of heart failure at his home in Croton-on-Hudson, New York, his wife said on Tuesday. He was 92.

Between 1950 and 1970, Gill drew the masked rider of the Old West, the Lone Ranger, and his Indian sidekick Tonto for "The Lone Ranger" comic books. He also drew the "Hi-Yo Silver" and "Bonanza" comic books.

He taught cartooning and children's book illustration in New York area colleges, including the School of Visual Arts, where he served as department chair in 1948 and alumni director in 1969.

Gill grew up in Brooklyn and went to work for the New York Daily News, where he was credited with drawing the first map of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Later he worked for the New York Herald Tribune and the New York Times.

He is survived by his wife, Patricia, daughter Nancy Zaglaluer, son Tom, four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

A funeral Mass will be held in Croton-on-Hudson on Friday.
