I won 3rd Place in the Dwarf category (1-10 lines).

File 770 reported the Contest’s biographical notes about the winners. Mine was simply “John Hertz is”. This was due to no request, coyness, or like that, from me. No one asked. If the Contest called for any biography from entrants, I missed it. However, I’m content.
Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) was the first full-length cel-animated feature film. In Disney’s telling, Snow White meets dwarfs called Doc, Grumpy, Sleepy, Happy, Bashful, Sneezy, and Dopey.
