Walt Disney Archives
The Walt Disney Archives were set up to collect and preserve all historical records and archives belonging to the Walt Disney Company in an effort to continue to provide inspiration to the next generations of artists. The Archives were set up 50 years after the Walt Disney Company, originally established in 1923, first brought Mickey Mouse to the public.
