The Victory Lap

It is not unusual for an American Presidency to end with a visit to the Southern California Disney facility known as Disneyland. Generalisimo Eisenhower brought the Family. Reagan was involved in a major milestone celebration at the Park. Jimmy Carter took a jog before opening while still in office.

DOSSIER: We are continually impressed by the writing and podcasting of Todd James Pierce. His research is exhaustive. Thoroughness would be his middle name if he wasn’t already showing three cards. But it’s not digging for the sake of digging. Specifically, in his Disney Historical Institute podcasts, and his recent book, Three Years In Wonderland, his fact mastery cuts to the heart of, and the true motivation for the events he depicts. He leaves out uncorroborated “legend” in an area of study that is rife with fable, fantasy, and mythology. While chronicling those who were creating fable, fantasy, and mythology. No small task.

Here’s his personal bio…

Todd James Pierce lives in a town called Orcutt, California, which is in the northern portion of Santa Barbara County. He is the author or co-author of eight books, including Newsworld, which won the Drue Heinz Literature Prize. His work has been published in over 80 magazines and literary journals, including The Georgia Review, The Gettysburg Review, Harvard Review, Indiana Review, The Iowa Review, The Missouri Review, North American Review, VQR, and Willow Springs. His most recent book is Three Years in Wonderland, which tells the story of Walt Disney and the birth of the American theme park industry. Here is his Amazon page. And you can find him his own self, online at http://www.toddjamespierce.com.
