Born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1901, Walt Disney went on to create some of the most famous cartoon characters in history.  In addition, Disney envisioned the construction of two theme parks that bear his name.

America’s First Disney Stamp

In September 1968, the United States Postal Authority issued its first Disney stamp, thereby commemorating Walter Elias Disney’s (1901-1966) contributions to America and to the world.  Two Disney artists designed the stamp – Paul Wenzel crafted Walt’s portrait and Bob Moore drew the background design of children of the world emerging from the Sleeping Beauty Castle.  First Day ceremonies were held in Marceline, Missouri, Disney’s boyhood village that he regarded as an ideal community.  Almost a million first day covers were cancelled in Marceline and over 150 million Disney stamps were purchased at U.S. post offices during the next ten days.  It would be 36 years before another U.S. stamp honored the contributions of Walt Disney.
