Anybody? Pretty Please?

Does anyone have a floorplan of KEM Weber's original (1939) Disney animation building in Burbank? I'd be very grateful for a copy!

Here is the so-called Wing of the Gods (Floor 1, Wing D), 7/25/1946. Frank Thomas has just returned from his war effort and is in another wing on the second floor - in 2B-8. Walt's office isn't in 3H-1 either.

Room   Who was in it...
1D-1      C. Coor-Pender, Nat Figarotta, Jack Moffet, Bill Southwood
1D-2      Jack Bailey, Don Hall, Henry Tanous
1D-3      Marc Davis
1D-4      Milt Kahl
1D-5      Grace Hurt
1D-6      Eric Larson
1D-7      Clarke Mallery
1D-8      Bob McCrea
1D-9      Ollie Johnston
1D-10    Al Stetter, Robert Vogel
1D-11    Tom Barnes, Gus Jekel
1D-12    Fred Moore
1D-13    Ward Kimball
1D-14    M. Schuster, Ken Walker
1D-15    Larry Kilty, Don Lusk
1D-16    Don McCormick, Clair Weeks

Don't hold back, folks! Message me in a comment!
(NB:I will not publish it if you don't want me to!)

Hans--how did I miss this post?! Thanks for alerting me to it! Weird coincidence: I have the original guide to one of the wings of the Animation building, taken down when the last animators left it (and moved to Flower Street) sometime around 1984 or so; I just pulled it out of the drawer to look at it and----it's from none other than D-wing! Wow. I didn't know Fred, etc. were in THAT wing! I'll post it for fun soon--perhaps next week. It's a very plain thing, just white names and room assignments on black paper(as people moved in and out they'd slip a new roster in front of the last one.). But for the record, why not?
Good luck in locating a floor plan for the Animation Bldg...I have to believe someone has it somewhere.

Robert Vogel was my dad. Would love to connect with anyone who knew him back then.
