Hugh Harman

These are photos of animation pioneer Hugh Harman.
I am currently researching his life/career. If anyone has any items of interest, please contact me. I have just about all that is available on the internet, so links are probably not helpful. If you know the whereabouts of his children, I would like to contact them as well.
Hugh worked with Disney in Kansas City and came out to Los Angeles work on the Alice comedies with Disney. (see photo) He later founded Warner Bros. animation department with Rudy Ising - later hiring people like Joe Hanna and William Barbera.
I met him at an auction of Walt Disney's uncle's garage (yes, there was such an auction) on Kingswell Ave. in Hollywood back in 1982 and shortly after that he died.
