TARZANA TREK - PART V
Tarzana Friends Part I

A VISIT WITH LINDA BURROUGHS

The Burroughs Magnificent Home in Tarzana

Danton Burroughs (1944-2008)
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.

.Our sincere thanks to Linda, Llana Jane and Dejah.
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.

MARY BURROUGHS

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 Coleman Burroughs.

KEVIN CONRAN
KEVIN CONRAN
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 Carter
See: ERBzine 3694 and ERBzine 3695
Our photo memories of this meeting were lost due to a camera malfunction.

STACY BURROUGHS
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.
