Walt in Kansas - 1922
Walt can be seen at the far right of the photo filming the the Cowles children. That's probably Mrs Cowles in sand pit with the kids. One of Walt's principal backers in the Laugh-O-Grams venture was Dr. John V. Cowles and this is no doubt his family. It was also in 1922 that Laugh-O-Grams placed an add in the Kansas City Star offering their services to photographing babies.
The upcoming "Walt Before Mickey" will cover this and more, hopefully in more detail than we've read before, I can't wait for that one.
