Century Birthday - Godfrey Bjork

Iwerks animator Godfrey Bjork would have been 100 years old today.

Please see the earlier post from last May for more about this almost forgotten figure.

In the months since then, I have found that he was married at the time to a woman named Lydia. They apparently did not have any children.

Noted in the earlier post was information that Bjork is interred at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The exact plot location is shown on the map below.
