As a film producer he received 22 Academy Awards from 59 nominations and has won more individual Oscars than anyone else.

He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and one Emmy Award, among other honors.

Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.

Born in Chicago in 1901, Disney developed an early interest in drawing.

The results, seen in features such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Fantasia, Pinocchio (both 1940), Dumbo (1941) and Bambi (1942), furthered the development of animated film.

New animated and live-action films followed after World War II, including the critically successful Cinderella (1950) and Mary Poppins (1964), the second of which received five Academy Awards.

In the 1950s, Disney expanded into the amusement park industry, and in 1955 he opened Disneyland.

He took art classes as a boy and got a job as a commercial illustrator at the age of 18.

He moved to Hollywood in the early 1920s and set up the Disney Brothers Studio (later The Walt Disney Company) with his brother Roy.

With Ub Iwerks, Walt developed the character Mickey Mouse in 1928, his first highly popular success; he also provided the voice for his creation in the early years.

As the studio grew, Disney became more adventurous, introducing synchronized sound, full-color three-strip Technicolor, feature-length cartoons and technical developments in cameras.
