This Day in Disney History October 16, 1923


Walt Disney (now living in California) receives a telegram from Margaret
 Winkler (a New York cartoon distributor) offering to pay $1500 each for the first six of
 his Alice Comedies. Also known as M. J. Winkler, she is the first woman to produce and distribute animated
 films. Walt rushes over to the Veterans Hospital, where his brother Roy is recovering from tuberculosis, to tell him
 the good news. (Miraculously Roy will leave the hospital the next day - a cured man!)
