Obit: Thomas Tierney, paper doll artist, dies at 85


Thomas Tierney, age 85 dies on July 12 2014.

Tom Tierney, who quite by accident found fame and fortune dressing — and undressing — notables from George Washington to Greta Garbo to Pope John Paul II, died on July 12 at his home in Smithville, Tex. The cause was lung cancer, Kathy O’Tierney, his niece, said and he was 85.

He is most notable for his fashion paper dolls for Dover Publications.
