Prod. 2721 - Bahia! (II)

Here is the fourth sequence of Bahia, "Os Quindins De Yaya." Animation by John Lounsbery, Fred Moore, Ward Kimball, Eric Larson, Les Clark, Ollie Johnston and John Sibley. That makes 5/9th of the Nine Old Men.

Now as to who directed what...
The director of Prod. 2016, The Three Caballeros (and of Prod. 2015, Saludos Amigos) is listed as Norm Ferguson. On the Saludos draft he is actually called Production Supervisor, and he is mentioned as such in the director spot on all the inserts of that film. The sequence directors (or basically shorts directors) on Caballeros are missing on some of the sequences (especially on the one in these postings).
Prod. 2016 - these are the inserts to glue the shorts together to make this a feature: Jack Kinney directed seq. 1 (Opening - into Penguin Picture), 2 (Birds - Insert from Penguin to Gauchito) and the first 5 scenes of seq. 3 (Lead into Baia). Thereafter no info on seq. 3 or seq. 4 (Duck - Parrot Blowing Up).
(Prod 2711, El Gaucho Goofy, dir. Kinney, was part of Saludos)
(Prod 2712, Lake Titicaca, dir. Roberts, was part of Saludos)
Prod. 2713, The Flying Gauchito: Ferguson/Larson.
(Prod. 2714, Pedro, dir. Luske, was part of Saludos)
(Prod 2717, Aquarela Do Brasil, dir. Jaxon, was part of Saludos)
Prod. 2718, The Cold Blooded Penguin: Bill Roberts.
Prod. 2721, Bahia (the subject of these postings) no info.
Prod. 2725 La Pinata: seq. 1, 2, 3 & 8: Gerri Geronimi
- seq. 4, 5, 6 & 7: Norm Ferguson.

Maybe the "missing" director is Fergy, his name being top billed on this picture, and he has directed all the inserts in Saludos.
But this is purely my speculation...
