An American entrepreneur and his brother launched their business in the early 1920s. They believed that heritage, ideals, code and standards are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas, which incidentally aligns with our efforts to create open source development as a cultural norm.
Their first success was in 1928 with the introduction of what became a famous cultural icon. Today, their legacy lives on. The enterprise holds the record for the most Academy Awards earned by an individual with 22 Oscars, as well as 2 Golden Globes and an Emmy. The National Film Registry and the Library of Congress feature their work. Now it is the world’s largest diversified, international family entertainment and media enterprise with 12 locations in the United States, Japan, China and France. And it all started with a mouse.
