1930s, comprising a Western Union telegram (glued to another piece of paper) from Arthur Babbitt discussing his offer with the Disney Studios Ask one eighty merrie melodies conditions better than new york but disturbed walt has room for you but will not outbid others if dissatisfied east come west chance to show your stuff think Disney best bet you should decide I can only suggest my love to folks and friends write Arthur Babbitt Walt Disney Studios.; an inter-office memo on Walt Disney Productions memo paper, dated February 4, 1939 from Walt (glued to another piece of paper), Dear Bill: Since the critics have voted Snow White the best picture for 1938, I thought you might like to stow away the attached copy of film Daily with all the other memoirs you may be saving for your grandchildren. Anyway, I think we should all be very happy that the picture has been selected as 1938’s best signed Walt; a two page typed letter addressed to William Tytla from Ben Sharpsteen, dated December 2, 1933, the letter offers him a job with a salary of $100 a week, contained in its original Disney envelope; and a cartoon of Tytla with a handwritten note dated December 22nd, the “Premiere” seemed to have gone over quite well last night and the write-ups seemed to be quite good. It’s difficult for me to tell because I’m to close to it……, referring to the premiere of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, some creases and small tears on the edge.
