Arthur "Art" Clokey (October 12, 1921 – January 8, 2010)

Art Clokey was a pioneer of stop motion clay animation. While studying film at the University of Southern California, he made a clay animation experimental film in
1955 called Gumbasia. As a result of this project, Clokey and his wife Ruth soon 
created the clay character Gumby.
