May 10, 1959 – Sharon Mae Disney Marries Robert Borgfeldt Brown
“Well, she’s your problem now, Bob.”
On May 10, 1959, Sharon Mae Disney, Walt’s youngest daughter, married Robert “Bob” Borgfeldt Brown in a small ceremony in Pacific Palisades. Sharon and Bob, a designer at architectural firm Charles Luckman, began dating after being set up on a blind date by mutual friends, and were engaged after a year and a half of dating. After the pair were married, Walt carried on the tradition of convincing his sons-in-law to join the company, and Brown did in 1963, becoming a planner in WED (now Walt Disney Imagineering).
