Life after death

In 1968, Disney was awarded the U.S. Congressional Gold Medal. There is also a widespread version of the multiplier freezing in a cryogenic chamber, which he went to in the hope of finding a method for defrosting the human body in the distant future.
His place was taken by brother Roy, who ran the Walt Disney Company until 1971. After his death, the company was headed by three people – Card Walker, Donn Tatum and Ron Miller, whom the Disney brothers had already begun to prepare for leadership. Walt Disney left to his successors many projects and ideas that he did not manage to realize himself.
The gradual implementation of Walt’s ideas allowed the company two more decades to maintain its leading place in the global entertainment industry, won during the life of the founder. And in recent years, the company has also grown seriously, having bought several companies that were famous for their unique individual style – Pixar, Marvel Comics and Lucasfilm.

History of the Walt Disney Company

The story of the Walt Disney Company began back in 1901 on December 5, when the fourth of five children, Walter Elias, was born into the family of a carpenter and teacher.
When Walt was 4 years old, the Disney family moved to the small town of Marceline, Missouri. Disney bought a farm there. The family did not have money for pencils and paper, and Walt wanted to draw. He found tar, a stick and painted a house …
In Marceline, many knew Walt. He was distinguished by a cheerful disposition, so his neighbors and just acquaintances loved him very much. One of the neighbors, an elderly veteran, Dr. Sherwood, paid Walt 25 cents for the boy to draw his horse on a piece of paper. Disney later believed that it was the successful portrait of Dr. Sherwood’s mare that prompted him to become an artist.
Walt since childhood showed interest in drawing, and began his first comics at the age of seven. Young Walt participated in the creation of the school newspaper as an artist and photographer, and in the evenings he attended the Academy of Fine Arts. Then he took a course of newspaper cartoonists, where he was taught non-standard thinking, funny violations of familiar logic and laconic manner. Continue reading
