Happy 91st Birthday to Disney Legend, animator, and Imagineer Roland Fargo “Rolly” Crump, who was born in Alhambra, California on this day in 1930. First joining Walt Disney Studios in 1952, he worked as an inbetweener, before becoming an assistant animator. In 1959, Crump joined #WEDEnterprises and became a designer of some of #Disneyland’s attractions and shops, including The #HauntedMansion, #EnchantedTikiRoom and Adventureland Bazaar. He was also responsible for designing many of the #Disney attractions at the #1964NewYorkWorldsFair, including #itsasmallworld and the #ToweroftheFourWinds marquee. In 1976, Rolly designed the #Land and #WondersofLife pavilions for #EpcotCenter. Happy Birthday Rolly!#disneylegend #rollycrump #waltdisney #disneyimagineer https://instagr.am/p/CL0mWgSA2cy/
@maximillian_deersteak knit a sweet surprise of a warm hat for Sisto Brak! They say you lose most of your heat through your head, so maybe this is the solution to his chilly situation! (And springtime is rapidly approaching)
He will enjoy his swampwalks in far greater comfort next week!

Dave Porter’s Return to School by Edward Stratemeyer, 1907
“Carl was made to bow until his nose touched the floor.”
Edward L. Stratemeyer (October 4, 1862 – May 10, 1930) was an American publisher and writer of children’s fiction. He was one of the most prolific writers in the world, producing in excess of 1,300 books himself, selling in excess of 500 million copies. He also created many well-known fictional book series for juveniles, including The Rover Boys, The Bobbsey Twins, Tom Swift, The Hardy Boys, and Nancy Drew series, many of which sold millions of copies and are still in publication today. On Stratemeyer’s legacy, Fortune wrote: “As oil had its Rockefeller, literature had its Stratemeyer.”
Given the choice between lifting millions out of poverty or bombing thousands back to the stone age, they’ll always opt for the path of greatest suffering.
Americans fear World War III which, in their imaginations, is a curtain of nuclear missiles launched by some madman and not, despite the reiteration of history, one nation’s tireless usurpation of international sovereignty through military force. We’ve been in it a while…
