I was wondering if any of you guys know what happened to this site, or even the journal. As a historian interested in Disney, this was a treasure trove... if anyone has any information on it or its publisher, i would really like to know.

I just went to the site, and it was gone. :( you can still catch a cached site on google, so i am going to try the address listed. Please let me know if anyone else knows anything. If the guy is having trouble hosting his site, I would help! lol


then again, this might just be me having an old link or something, so here is the link i do have:

I was able to find this in the Internet cache. I have no idea whether or not it is still valid. Good luck. It looks like it used to be a very interesting website. I wish I would have known about it before it disappeared.

By the way, the following person is credited on the old website:

Paul F. Anderson, Editor & Publisher

Perhaps an Internet search on his name would provide more info? (I didn't bother doing that but you never know what might turn up.)

Here's the last update from Paul (from 2004). The site is not available at this time.

MAY 2004 ANNOUNCEMENT!

Persistence of Vision will be undergoing some changes and relaunch in the fall of 2004. We also have plans to update the Website and bring you historical material on a more regular basis. Including unpublished excerpts from some of Paul's 250 interviews; Disney historical documents; esoteric magazine and newspaper articles from the golden age of Disney; A Tribute page to Disney Artist Ken Anderson; and much more.
Please stay tuned for information on issue #11/#12 and our website update!

WHAT IS UP WITH PERSISTENCE OF VISION
It has been awhile since the last issue, and I do apologize. If anyone is interested in the reasons, please email directly and I will be happy to explain the situation. Throughout this time, I have been hard at work on the next double issue, which will feature a book-length piece on Walt Disney's contributions to World War II. I have accumulated over 6000 pages of historical material on this topic and have conducted approximately 25 interviews. There is a great deal of new information, as well as hundreds of images (art and photographs, most of which has never been seen before). Also featured in this issue will a an article by Raul Grisanti, who was selected by Walt Disney to manage the restaurants at Walt Disney. This article encompasses the 1950s through the late 1960s, with some wonderful information on Club 33. The final major piece I have scheduled for this issue will be an extensive interview with Walt's daughter, Diane Disney Miller. While I was working on the Walt Disney documentary film for the Disney Family, Diane was gracious enough to sit down with me for three hours and answer my questions. She was very candid and we discussed many things about her father, including their family Christmas, growing up with Walt, and more. Moreover we discussed many of the unfounded balderdash that exists about Walt, such as anti-Semitism, the frozen myth, and others. There will also be many of the smaller articles and columns that you are used to with Persistence of Vision. Paul F Anderson, Editor & Publisher. (May 5, 2004).
