My good friend and fellow animation historian Joe Campana stumbled a few days ago upon the autobiography of animator James A. Pabian, Immigrants' Son. There are only about 30 pages dealing with Pabian's career in animation at Iwerks, Schlesinger and Harman-Ising but I found them to be of extreme interest and I thought that a few of you would like to know that this book exists.
And there is an excellent interview by Martha Sigal with James' brother Al and his wife Joan courtesy of Harvey Deneroff which was posted at this link by Jerry Beck from Cartoon Research.
