H.A. Patrick Disney and Family info need
Posted by: Darren Tanke Date: November 20, 2000 at 11:09:58

H.A. (Henry Anthony) Patrick Disney helped W.E. Cutler and C.H. Sternberg collect dinosaur bones in Alberta, Canada in the summer of 1914. I need biographical information on this man for a book project currently underway. I do know the following about him:

-he served in WWI in the Royal Airforce and attained an officers rating.
-he may have some University training. Oxford was suggested, but contacts there can find no information on him.
-he survived WWI and was a Wing Commander in WWII.
-he married and had a son named Anthony Markham De Poer Disney. This son was killed in action while serving with the 132nd squadron, possibly flying Spitfires. He was 20 when he died.

I desire to make contact with living relatives of this Disney family and need to know more about H.A. Patrick Disney, his life, his military career, birth/death dates, photographs, etc. so I may complete the biographical entry on him for the book.

I can be emailed at:
