Personal Quote:

One should behave toward others as one would want others to behave toward oneself.


After Disneyland was built in Anaheim, California, in the 1950s, Walt Disney asked Peterson to develop merchandise. He began framing cells in his garage that then were sold at the park for about $2 each. Collectors now pay as much as $2,000 for one cell. See more »
