Herman Schultheis, P.H.D was a Walt Disney Studios photographer and technician in the Special Effects Department between February 1939 to June 1940. He would be best known for his work on Fantasia, Dumbo, and Bambi but also Pinocchio. Schultheis kept a meticulous journal of advanced special effects techniques used in Disney films, it is on display at The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, CA.
Mr. Schultheis, an avid world traveler, is believed to have perished in a Guatemalan jungle in 1955. His notebook, once offered to Walt for a paltry sum of $200 in 1939, was discovered by Howard Lowery hidden away in a murphy bed upon his widow's death in the early 1990s.
