This just in from my good friend Jim Hollifield:

[Dark Horse Comics recently published a collection of the 1978-1988 Winnie the Pooh newspaper comic strips.

While it's not a complete chronological collection, the book does have several hundred strips from the 10-year run, as well as a short history section crediting the artists who worked on the strip like Sparky Moore. Perhaps the best part, though, is that it prints all three of the Winnie the Pooh featurette newspaper adaptations from the "Treasury of Classic Tales" series. It was disappointing that the book series ended around 1961 with Volume 3, so it was nice that three adaptations from the later years were included in this new publication.]

I am currently studying the early Disney educational projects, in the context of my upcoming monograph about The Origins of Walt Disney's True-Life Adventures.  Which is how I stumbled onto this spread released in the July 27, 1943 issue of Look Magazine.

The article mentioned a movie about the electron that the Disney Studio was working on at the time, which intrigued me. I have now established that what the article was referring to is the third part of the Minneapolis-Honeywell training film, which you can discover at this link.

There is a lot more to this story, which eventually led to the making of Our Friend the Atom. More on this next year in the monograph :-)

I have been enjoying the One Day at Disney documentary on Disney+ and I am now also enjoying the One Day at Disney shorts which are being released weekly on the streaming service.

I received the One Day at Disney coffee-table book too late to review it before the holidays.

It is a beautiful complement to the series and a very enjoyable volume, which I am glad to own. Not in-depth, of course, since it covers so many cast members, but definitely full of good information and photographs about The Walt Disney Company today.
