It is management’s wish that the “Disney Tradition’ be revitalized and maintained. The tradition, as we see it, reflects the desires and aspirations of Walt, who strove to bring animation to a highly developed art. In attempting to recapture the quality attained in former years we need but to refer to the memo Walt wrote to Don Graham in 1935. It expresses the needs of the animation artist and the means he felt were necessary to develop and fulfill those needs.

They were living legends and we were in our early twenties, hungry to learn. When the time came to pair up the young recruits, I had the most fortunate blessing to be placed in an office with my new friend “Huz.” "Since those days we have shared many experiences of life...
