On June 22, 1970, the Walt Disney Archives was founded by Dave Smith to collect, preserve, and make available for use the various historical materials of The Walt Disney Company. Fifty years later, we celebrate this history-making—and preserving—department with the incredible staff who have followed his legacy. Join Archives director Becky Cline, meet today’s Archives team, and hear some of their favorite memories of the first half century of this storied department!
