On this day in 1901, the legend of animation, one and only Walter Elias Disney was born in Chicago, Illinois.
When he was four, his family moved to a farm in Marceline, a small town in Missouri, where Walt spent most of his childhood together with his parents Elias and Flora Disney, his three brothers: Herbert, Raymond, and Roy, and sister Ruth. He began to draw and paint during his early childhood while still in Marceline, copying the front-page cartoons of Ryan Walker from The Appeal to Reason newspaper.
