Disney During WWII upcoming talks

I will be giving public talks on the Disney Studios' role in producing US government propaganda during WWII at the following dates and locations. Although Disney Studios was the toast of Hollywood animation in the 1930s, its fortunes fell quickly on the eve of World War II. I will discuss Disney’s vital but now largely forgotten contribution to the war effort, which not only helped save the country but also a studio which would go on to become an American cultural institution.

Please feel free to attend if you're in the area.
