Spectacular auction coming up at Heritage Auctions on August 6 to 8!
Interesting discoveries about Disney history, vintage Disneyana, Disney artwork, the Walt's People book series, and new books about Disney.
1. The manuscript of Walt's People - Volume 26 is ready and being reviewed by contributors. I expect it to be released around October of this year.
2. The monograph about The Origins of Walt Disney's True-Life Adventures is awaiting review and approval by Disney and show be available well before the end of the year, if things go according to plan.
3. And along with my friend and fellow historian, Libby Spatz, I am currently tackling one of my most ambitious projects to date: a monograph titled Mickey Mouse on Stage and on Radio in the 1930s. We are making so many outstanding discoveries (among other things thanks to many volunteers around the US and around the world) that I have a feeling that the monograph may have to be split into two volumes. The photograph above is one of my latest finds. It dates from 1936 and features the two entertainers from New Zealand Reg Morgan and Albert Russell as they hosted the first Mickey Mouse radio program in Australia, "The Adventures of Mickey Mouse."
