My local newspaper just ran this photo on their website, taken in downtown Kalamazoo, in 1964.

Can anyone name this famous pipe smoker? Walt310

They describe him as "buying a newspaper", but I think we all recognize the way he's holding his right arm. You can't quite see a pipe in his hand, but he is leaving a pipe shop!

Any guesses as to who this fellow is?
(Hint: Unless you're rather young, you've seen him on T.V., but rarely in his glasses.)

Does Skrillex smoke a pipe?
Another clue: Although he died before I was born, I remember seeing him on T.V. every Sunday night in my childhood.
