Chris Harris  

Public Relations Specialist

Chris Harris long ago mastered the need to reach the emotional level in conveying a message when having to deal with the American and Foreign press. Through lectures across America in the late 1980’s Harris changed the way we promote a product or service proving that publicity was far more effective than advertising. The Associated Press gave Chris Harris the title “Public Relations Specialist.”

For more than four decades, Chris Harris has captured the imagination of the press and the public when he was invited into the Zodiac Killings in Northern California. He earned the respect of law enforcement, politicians, and the press. The legendary Paul Avery from the San Francisco Chronicle always called Harris before going with a lead. To better understand the Charles Manson Family and the killings Chris Harris spent a year in Death Valley living with the former members and encouraged Paul Watkins second in command of the Family, to write the book “My Life with Charles Manson.”

Chris Harris raised new interest into the death of Marilyn Monroe when he convinced his client a Beverly Hills, California antique dealer to put up $150,000 for the Marilyn Monroe Red Diary. Harris investigated her death for ten years reaching a conclusion that Marilyn Monroe did not die from an apparent suicide or overdose. When Chris Harris talks about Walt Disney, a silence comes over the room. Harris is perhaps one of the few besides his wife and children who got a close-up look at the great animator. In 1993, Chris Harris was asked by family members to recall his memories of Walt Disney when the book "WALT DISNEY HOLLYWOOD’S DARK PRINCE" was written.

Chris Harris tells the story of the Hollywood sign. Harris assisted in the unveiling of the new Hollywood sign in 1978 and is currently preparing to visit Los Angeles Sister Cites with the restored H of the original Hollywood Sign. Harris’s story of the history of the past and present day Hollywood Sign is compelling. Chris Harris begins each lecture with a motivational outreach to the audience. He believes that taking an interest in life and allowing our imaginations to travel, we can live a more fulfilling life.
