General Information

Edward H. Plumb was born in Streator, Illinois, in 1907. At the height of the motion picture heyday of the 1930s, Plum relocated to California to work in the film industry as a composer and orchestrator. He worked for several film studios, including Walt Disney Studios where he orchestrated the music for Lady and the Tramp, Song of the South, Peter Pan, and Dumbo. But it was his collaboration with song-writer Frank Churchill on the film Bambi that would earn Plum the first of four Academy Award nominations.

History of the Walldogs in Streator

In conjunction with the celebration of Streator's Sesquicentennial, the Walldogs took over the entire town of Streator, IL for 5 days adding a multitude of murals to building walls in the downtown area depicting Streator's rich historical heritage. Over the past year my wife and I have traveled to Streator twice to take shots of our car in front of several of the murals. We still have several to locate and shoot, so we will return again in the near future.
