Personal Quote:

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


He was a sales manager after college, but his true love was art. During the Great Depression he quit his job and, without any formal training, set out to become a cartoonist. After a brief attempt at making his own animated motion pictures, he joined the army of young artists Walt Disney hired in 1936 for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937). See more »
