Walter Elias Disney

1901-1966

Beloved by children and adults alike, Walt Disney was a renowned visionary in the fields of art and entertainment.

 

Arriving in Hollywood from his hometown of Marceline, Missouri in the early 1920's, Disney brought with him only "a suitcase and a dream" that would revolutionize the American entertainment industry.

 

From early cartoons which he drew himself to Academy Award winning full length animated films, Disney's drive and ambition were unequaled.

 

With each success, Disney's dreams grew ever larger expanding his interests into music, television, and theme parks.

 

"Disneyana", the collection of works by Disney and his studio of artists, remains highly popular across the globe.
