Thesaurus Term of the Day: Nelson, Greg

Nelson, Greg
Added: February 22, 2009

This is an example of a person in the thesaurus about whom I have absolutely no information, other than that they were mentioned in a Disneyland Line, specifically the August 29, 1973 Line. The mention is that he was slated to perform as Thackaberry in the Disneyland Drama Workshop production of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying." I figure it is enough to record mentions of Disneyland Recreation Club-related activities without noting the details. If somebody later inquires about an individual, I can go back to the source to find out the context. And this strategy has already paid dividends. A co-worker's mother worked at the Park for a few years in the mid-1970s; because she participated in the Bowling League and the Canoe Races, I had her recorded in the thesaurus.

Tomorrow: a non-person term, non-date term!
