Biography   Walter Bohl


Walter E. Bohl was born on September 10, 1907 in Columbus, Wisconsin where he loved to hunt and fish with his drawing as a secondary interest especially in the areas of birds, animals, and outdoor scenes. In 1930, he was working for the Illinois Bell Telephone Company in Chicago when he became seriously ill and had to leave his work.

During a long  convalescence he began drawing in pen and ink. The manager of the Marshal Field Picture Gallery was impressed but there was no market for the pen and inks but he suggested etchings. Walter Bohl made a press from a discarded clothes wringer, improvising a graver that was a darning needle set into a fiber handle, and getting his copper from a hardware store and polishing it by hand.
