Written by Janet Martin in 1939 for Wilson Library Bulletin (December 1939).

Janet Martin Lansburgh was Disney’s publicist in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The articles she wrote for various magazines are highly readable and informative and therefore worth re-releasing in Walt’s People.

For the library staff of Walt Disney’s studio, it is nothing more than regular routine to receive such strange requests as:
“Get me a close-up of a knothole!”
“Where can I get a drawing of a whale’s stomach?”
“Have you anything listed on people walking underwater?”
