Biography  
Joshua Meador


Born in Greenwood, Mississippi, Joshua Meador became a painter and animator in California.  He graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago, and in 1935 moved to California where until the 1960s, he lived in La Crescenta, and then moved to Casper in Northern California.  He died there on August 24, 1964 from a massive heart attack caused by childhood congenital problems.

Although it has been rumored that Meador's paintings were purchased by Walt Disney and exhibited at Disneyland, this is untrue.  Disney had purchased the paintings only while the artist was living, and Disney's collection of Meador paintings consisted of about 50 paintings, which were and are displayed at the various homes of Disney's heirs.&  ...  Displaying 750 of 5083 characters.
