" . . . as only his own daughter could tell it!"

We have long considered Diane Disney Miller to be one of our favorite persons here at 2719 Hyperion.  We are truly grateful for her tireless efforts on behalf of the Walt Disney Family Museum and the study and preservation of Disney-related history.  It was therefore a fun surprise when we stumbled across this advertisement dating back to 1959.  From the ad copy:

And you'll see how the master of make-believe appears in real life to his friends and family, and especially to the little girl who calls him "Daddy."

The Story of Walt Disney was a reformatted compilation of articles that originally appeared in the Saturday Evening Post beginning in November 1956.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Disney Family Museum when we visited last month!

Isn't this the book that she says Walt actually wrote but that she put her name on?
