Morris Katz of New York, considered the "world's fastest artist," died Friday after reportedly suffering a stroke. He was 78.
Katz had appeared on many local telethons in past years, especially those which were held for the Palmerton Hospital.
On the telethons, he would do his paintings usually taking him just minutes which were then auctioned or sold with the proceeds benefiting the hospital.
He appeared at such fundraisers throughout the country, doing paintings and donating them.
