Laurie Algar

Daughter of James Algar


Laurie has presented at the Walt Disney Family Museum to much acclaim and would be thrilled to be coming to the Pacific Northwest to share her unique and personal stories and images about Walt and her father.

Laurie recalls a childhood of summers spent in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana, watching her father and his film crew work. Her presentation will include personal anecdotes about growing up in the world of Disney, and offer an insider’s perspective of what it was like behind the scenes.

Laurie is an artist in her own right, working primarily in mosaic. She coordinates art exhibits at Winot Coffee in Niwot, and also pet sits locally. She often travels to give talks about her father’s career and her unique childhood, sharing photos, letters and behind-the-scenes tales with civic groups and film industry members.
