Souvenir Friday- Ford Times Article September 1961

From the Ford Times magazina, Disneyland- A Child's Garden of Fantasy by Art Linkletter and illustrated by Disney artist and imagineer Ralph Hullet. A nice description and anecdotes about Disneyland in 1961 by the host of House Party and author of Kid's Say the Darndest Things. Ford Times was a magazine you received a free subscription when purchasing your new Ford car or truck. This issue focused on tourist spots in the West, with Disneyland being one of the biggest. I have always wondered where the art to this articles is located, is it at Ford in their archives, Disney in the art morgue or waiting to be discovered?

Those are some beautiful illustrations!
Ralph Hulett's son Steve has a blog (concerning news that might interest folks in the Animation Guild ), and he sometimes posts paintings by his dad:

Type "Ralph Hulett" in the search box in the upper left of that page and you'll find 'em, easy as pie.

Thanks Major! I have been on the blog and looked at them. If I remember correctly he posted a nice lot of Christmas Cards his Dad had painted. I wonder if he has seen this article and also if he knows or has the paintings?

Hello. I am a frequent reader of the site. I just started my own blog about Disneyana and I was wondering if you would like to link to it. I have already linked to you so I would appreciate if you did the same.

If you would like to...
