One thought on “Interview: Kathryn Beaumont (Being a child actress and becoming a school teacher; “Alice” in later years)”

  1. Great interview, Scott! I love that Kathryn still enjoys talking about her time with Disney (and still contributes!). This is probably a long shot, but I wonder if you would be willing to share her contact info (with her permission, of course). I host a podcast called The Mad Chatters (obviously an Alice reference), and we want to do a special episode to honor the book’s 150th anniversary. What better way to honor Alice in Wonderland than by speaking to Alice herself? Please think about it and let me know. Thanks! And thanks for all of the Disney fun and information you bring us.
