(Walt Disney Productions, 1936) A rare and historically significant rejection letter on studio stationery sent to Lillian Ewers, a female artist who was interested in working on Disney animated cartoons. Ewers was told that the job advertisement she had read was "intended only for young men, as all creative work at this Studio is done by them." An interesting document that shows a look into the early life of Walt Disney Productions. A photo of the Ink and Paint Department circa 1936 is included in this lot, and the letter notes that, "the artwork done by women in the establishment is limited to inking on celluloid, and painting in the inked figures as directed." Letter measures 11"x8.5" and photo measures 8"x10". Letter is in good condition with some fold marks and minimal wear. Photo is in very good condition with minimal wear.
