TARZANA TREK - PART V
Tarzana Friends Part I
A VISIT WITH LINDA BURROUGHS

Danton Burroughs (1944-2008)
.Our sincere thanks to Linda, Llana Jane
Our annual visits with Danton were always a major yearly event
for us --- as they would be for any devoted ERB fan.
Together we explored the remains of what used to be Tarzana Ranch and
the gargantuan Burroughs Family Archives. There were always new treasures
to unearth in sheds, storage lockers, the warehouse, shelves, boxes and
forgotten suitcases. Our visits and long, long phone conversations with
Dan came to an end after his sudden
death in 2008.
We are thrilled, however, to see that wife Linda and daughters, Llana
Jane and Dejah, -- as well as the wonderful staff at ERB, Inc., and brother
John, are keeping Danton's memory alive and are still expanding on the
Burroughs family legacy.
And we are still looking forward to our visits with Linda and the chance
to document the treasures in the house and in various storage lockers.
This beautifully framed and inscribed Danton
Ex Libris means so much to us.
After a second day of treasure seeking
we brush off the dust and all head for a meal -- at an appropriate place.

SCOTT TRACY GRIFFIN
We had a great chat and meal with longtime
friend, Scott Tracy Griffin:
actor, ERB researcher, and author.
It was a chance to swap ERB tales and news
and to get
a sneak preview of Tracy's spectacular new
Centennial Tarzan book.
What a treat it was to visit again with
our dear friend, Mary Burroughs.
Mary was the second wife of ERB's youngest
son, John Coleman Burroughs.
One of our most treasured ERB/JCB-related
items is a wonderfully generous gift from Mary:
ON THE BEACH - An original painting by John
A highlight of this Tarzana Trek was a chance to finally meet and chat
with Kevin Conran over lunch at Jerry's Deli.
Kevin and his brother Kerry produced the film Sky Captain,
and were in line to do the John Carter of Mars film before
a series of unfortunate events allowed Disney
to pick up the option. Kerry did the production art for Sky Captain
and had also completed much of the art for their version of John
3694 and ERBzine 3695
Our photo memories of this meeting were lost due to a camera malfunction.
We couldn't leave California without visiting
Stacy - Mary Burroughs' daughter.
We were glad we had a chance to spend some
time in Mary and Stacy's beautiful waterfront home before their move.
