Biography Marc Davis
Marc Davis was born in Bakersfield, CA on March 30, 1913. During the
1930s he studied at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. Like so
many Depression era young people looking for jobs, he was pleased in 1935 to
hire on at modest wages when Walt Disney offered him a job, even though he had little
knowledge or skill in Disney Studio projects. Davis
became an apprentice animator, and, remaining
for 43 years, was one of Disney's closest associates, and part of a group of
long-timers dubbed "nine old men" by Disney. (The others were Les
Clark, Milk Kahl, Frank Thomas, Woolie Reitherman, Eric Larson, John
Lounsbery, Ward Kimball, and Ollie Johnston.)
