An exhibition of the photography of George Hurrell is now at the Walt Disney Family Museum located in the Presidio in San Francisco, California. In the 1940’s George Hurrell married Walt Disney’s favorite niece (Phyllis Bounds), and had three children. With this marriage, Walt Disney became George Hurrell’s ‘uncle-in-law.’ George Hurrell and his wife, Phyllis, founded a very successful independent TV production unit in 1950, that was housed on the lot at Disney Studios in Burbank, California.
