The Walt Disney Studios and World War II

The Walt Disney Studios and World War II exhibition, curated by Kent Ramsey ’77, is a retrospective of The Walt Disney Studios’ extensive contributions to the Allies’ World War II effort. This original exhibition illustrates how The Walt Disney Studios devoted over 90% of its wartime output to producing training, propaganda, entertainment, public-service films, publicity, print campaigns, and more than 1,200 insignia, while also deploying a group of talented artists, including Walt Disney himself, to Latin America on a goodwill tour. The exhibition opened in March 2021 at the Walt Disney Family Museum in the Diane Disney Miller Exhibition Hall at the Presidio in San Francisco and will move to Seattle’s Museum of Flight in 2022.
