I learned with great sadness yesterday evening that my good friend (and publisher for many years) Tom Tumbusch, passed away last week.

Tom is known in the Disney history community for the tremendous research he conducted about the history of Disney merchandizing, which resullted into 5 seminal books on the subject and a magazine (Tomart's Disneyana Updates) spanning 82 issues.

I probably would not have become a Disney historian without the discovery of Tom's books during my first trip to the US in the mid-'80s.

Tom will be missed dearly.
