Biography Walter Dean Slager
The following information is from Matthew Shumaker:
"Walter Dean Slager was my mother's great uncle. He was one of the youngest of a large extended family. His death in Mexico City came about when he ran out of money, and he was put out of his lodgings in winter. He caught pneumonia, which was made worse by the cold and wet weather. His female companion, whose name my mother could not recall, did the best she could for him.
A Mexican family took him in and tried to nurse him back to health, but his pneumonia was too far advanced. When he died, my mother inherited four of his paintings, which were oil on canvas laid on hardwood. She had them framed in the San Francisco area in 1965."
