There's also a Santa Claus cover illustration for one of the 1950s

I'll try to look through the 1953-1957 S-B Saturday columns later
this week to see what else he may have written about Christmas.
Quite a few columns are already transcribed and published on the
group website, but perhaps I can find a few more that specifically
relate to Christmas. As we know, DB maintained a Christmas card
list in the thousands. He referred to it often in his columns.

"Don Blanding Recalls ... Christmas 1916," published on December 25,
1954, is in 2 places:
Files > Publications > Honolulu Star-Bulletin > 1954 Articles by Don
When I transcribed the article back in 2004, I thought I had scanned

editorial blurb) at
Files > Illustrations > Don Blanding
This Santa Claus is decidedly Hawaiian!
