Clyde R. White - Animator at the Disney Studio

Q: My grandfather, Clyde White, was an early artist who drew Mickey Mouse for Walt Disney — probably in the mid to late 1930s (but not sure of the exact dates). Do you have any record of my grandfather? Maybe a picture or something showing his name? It would be really great to see this!

A [Dave Smith]: Clyde R. White was in training as an animator at the Disney Studio beginning on May 26, 1939, but he left on July 8 of that year before being given a full-time job.


  1. Perhaps it is too late, but I would like to get in contact with you, Ms. Farida. I have details about the work of your grandfather at Disney, and I would love the opportunity to know more about his life after he left the studios.

  2. Your grandfather was a hero.
    I read about him in a newspaper in my country.


    The info is in Spanish, but maybe is very useful yet
