Happy Birthday Walt Disney

The Libraries has many titles in its collections on Walt Disney. Books on his studio's feature films, the theme parks, biography, cartoons and animation, society and history, even African Art. A few titles below caught my eye, especially The Disneyization of society.

Mickey's creator Walter Elias (Walt) Disney was born today, in 1901.
