(Disneyland, 1955) A colorful character, former college professor turned lion tamer, Professor George J. Keller, was a last minute addition to the ill-fated Mickey Mouse Club Circus in Fantasyland. Just off his tour with Polack Bros. Circus, Walt Disney hired Keller to liven up his circus with the addition of live jungle cats. Although the Mickey Mouse Club Circus itself ended in January 1956, Keller’s act continued alone in the nearly vacant tent for a few of months more to finish out his contact. As Walt often did with Disneyland live performers, he allowed Keller to sell his stock souvenir photos at the concession stand, free of commission, to augment his salary. Included in this lot is one of those photos paired with a hand-signed souvenir color postcard. The photo measures 8.25 x 10 in. with some aging to the paper stock and a small piece of tape on the reverse of one corner. The postcard is unused and measures 3.5 x 5.5 in. In good condition with a light partial crease in center, Hand-signed on the reverse.
