Disney Archivist Responds

February 02, 1986

Despite Leonard Mosley's contentions (Book Review, Jan. 12), the Disney Studio has never "sanitized" any previous books about Walt Disney. Mosley refused to let us even read his manuscript to correct the spellings, dates and other facts, and, as a result, I compiled four pages of corrections just from a quick first reading. It is a shame to have the results of such shoddy research in a book, because many people believe everything they read in print. And, from all his dealings with me, Mosley should know by now that my name is not David E. Smith.
