Um... Wow!! Can you imagine the bad press and lawsuits Disney would get for sending someone a letter like that in today's day and age? 8o

That letter is really valuable Jessica. I hope you hang onto it for when you decide to write a 'women in animation' book!

check out the "secret lives special" on walt disney on youtube, I think there are 6 parts. Disney is a racist, sexist freak.

"In order to apply for a position as Inker or Painter, it is necessary that one appear at the studio, and bring samples of pen, ink and water color work."
