The June 26th, 1963 issue of the Tolucan offers a wonderful interview with Harriet Burns, discussing the recent debut of the Tiki Room, as well as her role in creating many other parts of Disneyland. It's the only place we've seen an article (vs. interviews) refer to the fact that Harriet "dressed" the robin that sings a duet with Mary Poppins in the movie...& it's the only place we've heard her daughter Pam referred to as...Laura! Cheers!
We continue to come across fun pieces of Disney History among Harriet's things. A recent find was a stack of photos from the set of Darby O'Gill and the Little People. Harriet worked on props for the movie, including the giant gold throne! We'll post more photos leading up to St. Patty's Day!
