Joyce Carlson Passes-Away at Age 84
Walt Disney Co. artist Joyce Carlson, whose work ranged from coloring the lead characters of Lady and the Tramp to creating many of the doll characters for Disney's It's a Small World attractions, died at her home in Orlando. She was 84. Carlson began her career with Walt Disney Productions in 1944 as an office assistant, but moved on to ink animated movies, then to create models for Disney's 1964 World's Fair pavilions and worldwide theme park attractions. Carlson was declared a "Disney Legend," the company's equivalent of a hall-of-fame induction, and earned a commemorative, second-floor shop window along the Magic Kingdom's Main Street U.S.A. The sign there reads: "Dolls by Miss Joyce, Dollmaker for the World."
