Isao Tomita
I think the musician Isao Tomita is worthy of being in the "Famous" category. He was a great composer, performer, and a pioneer in his "art."

What do you think?

RE: Marcia X. Johnstone
I have found a very good photo of Stokowski with the harpist and on reflection she is not an exact likeness to Edna Philips. Is there a way of forwarding the photo. Here is the link so you can check it out. I do hope it is Marcia Johnstone.

RE: Marcia X. Johnstone
Thanks for that. She looks very like the Edna Phillips so I assumed that it was not Marcia in Fantasia. I stand corrected. I can't find a reference to Marcia in any of the studios but she married Ervin L Klein in 1945 so assume that Richard would be his son?? They both worked for Motion Picture Studios in 1945. There are several other photos of the harpist so maybe you can see the likeness. Thanks again Robbie in Scotland Just for interest Marcia is descended from my Gass ancestor Nichol Gass born 1688 in Annan, Scotland

Marcia X Johnstone
I was researching a descendant of my ancestors and one of the branch who moved to Los Angeles was Marcia X Johnstone. You say she was the harpist in Fantasia but according to my findings she could not be Marcia. Here is what I have found.

Edna Phillips and Majorie Tyre.
As the musicians are coming onto the stage in silhouette and begin to play, our otherwise all-male orchestra is joined by two female harpists. Their presence is never called out by the narrator, in the credits, or indeed presented as being special in any way. But in 1940, they were quite special: they were the only women playing in any of the “Top 5” orchestras in the United States. Edna had won her audition as principal harp for Mr. Stokowski in 1930, at only 22 years of age, and continued performing full-time with the orchestra until resigning in 1941. She would return perform with them from time to time for another eleven years.
Marjorie was selected as the second harpist shortly after Edna, although she too resigned in 1941.  
They were pioneers. In contrast, the first woman would not join the Chicago Symphony Orchestra until 1944, the Boston Symphony Orchestra until 1952, or the New York Philharmonic until 1966.

Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph Jack Kington's marker. I taught with him for nearly 20 years in West Hartford and respected his high standards for himself and his students. Tom

Thank You!
Thank you very much for taking a picture of the Diurna's family head stone. This headstone included many of my family members including my great-great-grandfather. I appreciate your hard work.
