Richard Creedon - my 278th pick to be named a Disney Legend

Richard Creedon is famous for one thing he did for Disney - he adapted the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs for a screenplay used by Disney Studios for their smash hit. Creedon is my 278th pick to be named a Disney Legend.

On August 9, 1934, twenty-one pages of notes—entitled "Snowwhite suggestions"—were compiled by staff writer Richard Creedon, suggesting the principal characters, as well as situations and 'gags' for the story. As Disney had stated at the very beginning of the project, the main attraction of the story for him was the Seven Dwarfs, and their possibilities for "screwiness" and "gags"; the three story meetings held in October and attended by Disney, Creedon, Larry Morey, Albert Hurter, Ted Sears and Pinto Colvig were dominated by such subjects.

Jeff Burke - my 276th pick to be named a Disney Legend

Jeff Burke is a former Disney Imagineer who joined the company in the early 1970s.

The first two attractions that he worked on were Country Bear Jamboree and America Sings as a figure-finisher.

He then went on to create other attractions such as Kitchen Kabaret at Epcot's The Land pavilion, the Wonders of Life pavilion at Epcot, Phantom Manor at Disneyland Paris and The Enchanted Tiki Room (Under New Management) at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

Harry Morgan - my 275th choice to be named a Disney Legend

Actor Harry Morgan, famous for his roles in Mash and Dragnet, also had some key parts in Disney films. He is my 275th pick to be named a Disney Legend.
