Sterling Holloway Born

Actor and animated film voice Sterling Price Holloway was born in Cedartown; Ga. Early, he became interested in acting, but because of his unique high-pitched voice and bushy hair, Holloway’s early stage roles were generally those of comical youth characters. In 1953, he became a regular character on the television series, “The Life of Riley.” But of all roles, Holloway is best remembered not for his acting but for his instantly recognizable voice as Winnie-the-Pooh in the Walt Disney animated films. He died on Nov. 22, 1992 in Los Angeles, California.
