More Women in Animation

How cool is Dan Haskett!!! He just emailed me another list of women in animation/film! Enjoy!

Hi, Michelle!

Here is a partial list of folks I either know or know of in American animation. Most of them are your foremothers, women who worked from approximately 1930 to 1980. Some are my contemporaries. In any event, if you have any questions about them, let me know. Also, you might be interested in a recent (2005) book on women cartoonists, FUNNY LADIES by Liza Donnelly. (Publisher: Prometheus Books) It's a history of NEW YORKER Magazine cartoonists, with many good points to make about the business.

Cheers,
-- Dan

I'm looking for photos of LaVerne Harding (at Lantz or later on) and Lillian Freedman (at Fleischer) .

Do you know of any ? I've searched the web and haven't come up with any.

I meant Lillian Friedman, of course . (spelled it wrong above as "Freedman")
