DUBLIN, Ga. (AP) – Karl Slover, one of the last surviving actors who portrayed Munchkins in the 1939 classic film, "The Wizard of Oz," died of cardiopulmonary
arrest Tuesday afternoon in a suburban Atlanta hospital, according to Laurens
County Deputy Coroner Nathan Stanley.

Slover, one of the smallest of the male Munchkins in the movie (4-foot-5), was
best known for playing the lead trumpeter in the Munchkins’ band but also had
roles as a townsman and soldier in the film.
