E&P reports that Mort Walker’s National Cartoon Museum to be located in the Empire State Building, will get an influx of $1.8 million in funding from New York City:

The NCM, slated to open next year, was formerly the International Museum of Cartoon Art. It began in Connecticut in 1974, moved to Rye Brook, N.Y., and then was situated in Boca Raton, Fla., for six years before closing in 2002. The museum, which has a collection of about 200,000 cartoons, was founded by “Beetle Bailey” creator Mort Walker of King Features Syndicate.
