JOHN BURGESS HILLSBURY

Mr. Hillsbury, who worked as Santa at the downtown Meier & Frank store for about 25 years, also was an accomplished actor, director, costume designer and the founder-president of two theater troupes.
He was born May 20, 1921, in Spokane. In 1925, he moved to Portland, where he graduated from Grant High School in 1939.

During the late 1950s, Mr. Hillsbury worked in the film department of KPTV (Channel 12). In his later years, he also worked as a desk clerk for about a decade at The Arlington Club, retiring in 1989.
But his first love was the theater, family and friends agreed.
"He was a wonderful actor," said Peggy West, a longtime friend and fellow thespian. "He had a wonderful background in New York City. But he also did a lot of theater in Portland. . . . He had his own theater going here, called the Portland Playhouse, which put on some very good shows. He also did a lot of acting and directing for the Portland Civic Theatre."
In 1957, Mr. Hillsbury returned to Portland after living in New York City since the late 1940s.
He was the founder and president of the Portland Playhouse, which opened in 1962 in the ballroom of the old Beaver Hotel on Northwest Glisan Street, said grandniece Tracy Duerst of Silverton. He later formed the Theatre Ala Carte, billed as the region's only touring dinner theater.
In the late 1960s, Mr. Hillsbury joined the Lipman Wolfe & Co. department store, playing Santa Claus.
But it was as Meier & Frank's Santa Claus, from the early 1970s to the 1990s, that he touched the most lives.
"He was a good Santa," Duerst said. "He rode in many of the (Christmas) parades, and . . . he was the Santa that the TV stations would always come to."
West agreed. "He once said: 'Now, I am Santa for the children's children.' "
Survivors include his niece, Mary Ann Miles of Silverton; and grandnieces, Tracy Duerst of Silverton and Patricia Tischer of Monmouth; and grandnephew, Bill Miles of Silverton.
