Knoxville History Project: Upcoming Events

Category: Festivals & special events, Free event, Lectures and Literature & readings

We have so many programs and events that we are involved in, here’s a quick look at what’s coming up!

THIRD THURSDAY AT MAPLE HALL
JUNE 20, 2019 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
In 1945 Knoxville resident Mildred Keister Dennis made a live action film based on Walt Disney’s groundbreaking animated film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The production starred Mildred’s 11-year old daughter Carolyn, who appeared alongside neighborhood children, and made use of locations in Savage Gardens, Sequoyah Hills, and the Dennis’s Glenwood Avenue home. The film was screened for thousands of local children over the next few years, and even received a letter of praise from Walt Disney himself.
Joining Jack Neely for this special showing is Eric Dawson, chief archivist with the Tennessee Archive of Moving Image and Sound, part of the Knox County Public Library.
