Edna Disney, Roy O. Disney, Walt Disney, and Lillian Disney. Photo not included.
Walt Disney, Roy O. Disney, their Wives,
This legal document is signed not only by Walt Disney, but also his brother Roy O. Disney, and Walt's wife Lillian Disney, as well as Roy's wife Edna. Disney's famous lawyer Gunther Lessing has also signed. In this 1948 agreement the Disney family gives (assigns) 5,000 shares of Disney stock to Walt and Lillian's daughter Sharon Mae Disney. This is an amazing collection of autographs on an important Disney family document.
Many people don't realize that the original name of the Disney Studio was the Disney Brothers Studio. There is no question that financial expertise of Walt's brother Roy was critical in building and holding together the Disney Company during Walt's lifetime and after, until the opening of Walt Disney World. Roy O. Disney passed away in 1971, just weeks after overseeing the grand opening of Disney World. Both Roy O. Disney and his wife Edna Disney have also signed this document.
Lillian Bounds started at the Disney Studio in 1923- when it was still more of a Disney office. She worked as an inker and painter, earning $15 a week. According to Bob Thomas's great book, WALT DISNEY - AN AMERICAN ORIGINAL, Walt said to his pretty employee, "I'm going to buy a new suit. When I get it, would it be alright if I called on you?" She said it would be, and Walt and Lillian married two years later. She has signed this document "Lillian B. Disney."
Gunther R. Lessing headed Disney's legal department for many years before the Walt Disney promoted him to vice president and general counsel of Walt Disney Productions. At the Disney studio, known for its laid back atmosphere where everyone was addressed by their first name, it was Gunther Lessing who Walt referred to when he said, "The only Mister we have at the studio is our lawyer, Mr. Lessing." Lessing earned his law degree from Yale, and spent his early career in Mexico where he briefly acted as council for Pancho Villa. Walt Disney hired Lessing to represent them in late 1929 and early 1930 to protect their rights to their cartoons from the predatory Pat Powers. "If he was good enough for Pancho Villa then he's a good enough attorney for me," Walt Disney reportedly said. Lessing was hired by Disney in 1929 and stayed with the studio for 35 years, retiring in 1964.
