Walt Disney (1901-1966) was America's iconic cartoon entrepreneur and a pioneer in the film and theme park industries. He was not himelf an artist, but hired the best animators. In politics, he was a prominent conservative.

Late in life he developed Disneyland in Southern California, which the company duplicated in Walt Disney World (Orlando, Florida)), as well as Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Paris.

He married an employee Lillian Bounds in 1925, and, unlike many Hollywood marriages, their marriage lasted for over 40 years.[1]

Disney first gained fame with Mickey Mouse in the 1930s.

After his death, his brother Roy Disney ran the business.
