Walt Disney Archives 50th Anniversary

The Walt Disney Archives was established 50 years ago today (June 22, 1970).  Below are a couple images of the proposal and press release that are part of the Inside the Walt Disney Archives: 50 Years of Preserving the Magic  exhibit at the Bowers Museum.  Below that are links to several Walt Disney Archives Exhibits I have been able to visit over the years.  Then I close with an image and a couple videos from visits to archives events.
