Evern ‘Earl’ Bailly was born in Lunenburg (d. 1977). He contracted polio at age three and became a wheelchair-bound quadriplegic for the rest of his life. However, by the age of six he learned to paint by holding a brush between his teeth and later became a highly-regarded artist. In 1947, he was featured in the film On the Shores of Nova Scotia.
