End Time: 8:30 PM
Description:
 Although the Disney Studio was the toast of Hollywood animation in the 1930s, its fortunes fell quickly on the eve of WWII. Come hear about Disney's vital--but now forgotten--contribution to the war effort as a prolific producer of hundreds of educational, industrial, and propaganda films during the Second World War--an effort which not only helped save the country but also the studio that would go on to be an American cultural institution. Presented by Jason Sperb, Phd.
