56 Years Ago Today: Salute to Youth at Holidayland

More from the USC Digital Archives today with a few shots from June 13, 1958, featuring the "Salute to Youth" program at Disneyland. Walt Disney and Art Linkletter are surrounded by Peter Eltgroth (St. Robert Bellarmine High School), Sandra York (Bell Gardens), Shirley Rose (Milliken High School), and Kip Eder (John Muir High School). The caption for the photo reads:

Outstanding high school seniors and educators from Los Angeles and Orange County gathered at Disneyland Friday (June 13) for a 'Salute to Youth' program, honoring the achievements of the youth of Southern California. The students are pictured above with Walt Disney and Master of Ceremonies Art Linkletter.

Zooming in even closer for a gander at Sandra's Guest Sticker:

And of course a closer look at Walt & Art waving to all of the readers at Daveland:

Friday the 13th today, and it was Friday the 13th in 1958. Coincidence? I don't think so.
