Hamilton Luske started at the Disney Studio in 1931 and, despite lack of formal art school training, quickly became a significant animator on characters in animated shorts like Max Hare in The Tortoise and the Hare (1935) and Jenny Wren in Who Killed Cock Robin? (1935). Luske was the supervising director on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) and was the primary animator for the Snow White character. He later moved from animation into directing and writing for both animated features, shorts, and television. He received the Academy Award for Special Visual Effects in 1965 for Mary Poppins. He was made a Disney Legend in 1999.
