They Made the Magic: Hugh Hennesy

Happy belated birthday to Hugh Hennesy, born January 12, 1891.  Hennesy joined the Disney Studio in 1932 and worked on the art direction for Snow White.  His second wife, Helen, was Disney's first librarian.  Born January 12, 1891, he served in WWI, worked for the Washing Times and the Times Herald in Washington DC.  He worked for Disney for about 22 years and died suddenly in 1954.
The Disney History Blog has a great interview with Helen's granddaughter.
