Today we remember Shirley Temple. During her early years as an actress, Shirley visited with the Roosevelts at the White House and in Hollywood. In her March 19, 1938 “My Day” column, Eleanor Roosevelt had this to say about Shirley:
Our first visit was to Shirley Temple, whom I have had the pleasure of meeting before and who is, without exception, one of the most charming children I know. She is simple and unaffected and accepts the inevitable photographers and her as naturally as if this was the way every little girl lived her life
While visiting the White House in June 1938, Shirley presented FDR with a “Shirley Temple Police” Badge. She signed her letter from “Chief Shirley Temple.”
In July of 1938, Shirley and her parents visited Hyde Park for a picnic. Mrs. Roosevelt wrote all about the day in her July 11, 1938 “My Day” column.

Tons of people loved Shirley Temple, and one of her biggest fans was none other than Walt Disney himself. Their friendship began at the premiere of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937, and continued on after that for many years. She continued to appear in the spotlight even after her retirement at 21 to help Walt open the Sleeping Beauty Walkthrough attraction with a family of her very own. Years after Walt passing she continued to work with the Walt Disney Company and even had a hand at crafting Del montes sponsorship of the Magic Kingdom version of the Diamond HorseShoe Revue. Rest in Peace to a Hollywood Legend and wonderful public servant Shirley Temple.
