This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Hank Porter, a Disney promotions staff artist, is most famous for his work on Disney's wartime insignia drawings.  He also illustrated Disney's "Silly Symphony" cartoons published in Good Housekeeping from March 1941 to September 1944.

Porter began running his own successful Commercial Art studio in Buffalo N.Y., in 1925.  He later applied for a job at Disney, in 1936. There until 1950, he became a valuable staff artist in their Publicity Art Department and drawing most of the emblems himself and supervising some of the other workers, he headed up Disney's official 'Military Insignia' Department.

From the very beginning of World War II, different military units began adopting divisional "mascots" as their representative insignia.  And although both the 'Walter Lantz' & 'Warner Bros.' studios also contributed insignia designs, the lion's share of them were still created by Hank Porter through Disney Studios.
