6:30 PM Saving Mr. Banks, Red Dragon Theatre - Walt Disney spent twenty years in pursuit of the film rights to P.L. Travers' popular novel, "Mary Poppins," a quest he began in the 1940s as a promise to his two daughters. When Travers travels from London to Hollywood in 1961 to finally discuss Disney's desire to bring her beloved character to the motion picture screen, Disney meets a prim, uncompromising sexagenarian not only suspect of the impresario's concept for the film, but a woman struggling with her own past. During her stay in California, Travers reflects on her childhood in 1906 Australia, a trying time for her family that not only molded her aspirations to write, but one that also inspired the characters in her 1934 book. None more so than the one person whom she loved and admired more than any other-her caring father, Travers Goff, a tormented banker who, before his untimely death that same year, instills the youngster with both affection and enlightenment (and who would be the muse for the story's patriarch, Mr. Banks, the sole character that the famous nanny comes to aid). While reluctant to grant Disney the film rights, Travers comes to realize that the acclaimed Hollywood storyteller has his own motives for wanting to make the film-which, like the author's, hint at the relationship he shared with his own father.

The presentation is by SUNY Oneonta student Natalie Newton of Canandaigua, a double major in anthropology and history. The scrapbooks date from about 1926 to 1940, covering Bartow Bresee's years at Oneonta High School and the Oneonta Normal School as well as her travels and other leisure activities after her 1931 graduate from college. Newton will also speak on the value of scrapbooks as historical resources. Newton said, "I really enjoyed this project, it's interesting looking at these scrapbooks, seeing Oneonta through Esther's eyes and then walking outside and seeing it again through mine." Â Newton's research and presentation are part of a collaborative effort called "Oneonta in 100 Objects". Hartwick College and SUNY Oneonta students choose an object or group of related objects in the GOHS collection, enroll in an indepedent study course in their institution, research the object(s), then present the results of their research as a presentation and/or exhibit.
