Study Guide #1 1. After living in Chicago, the Disneys moved to Marceline in 1906. Marceline is where Walt remembers growing up and has many fond memories of, so much so he bases Main Street off of it. 2. Small town America was slowly disappearing and industrial America was becoming more important. This could be because it was getting more difficult for families to be able to make it in small towns where there were inevitably fewer job opportunities. 3. The Disneys had it rough from 18901910. Elias had trouble finding jobs to support his family. They had to move around for him to find work. 4. Elias Disney thought politics were important. He was very interested in and apparently agreed with Eugene Debs and his beliefs. 5. Elias did not like that it cost farmers so much to use the railroads to transport their goods nor did he like that wages were not distributed evenly. He also didn’t believe that using fertilizer on crops was something that should be done. 6. When Walt was successful, Elias acknowledged it, but he did not necessarily support or agree with it. For example, when Walt was showing Elias the studio, he was much more pleased with it when Walt described how it could be a hospital if the business failed. 7. Elias was part of the 19 century and had many of those values. Walt, on the other hand, th had more 20 century values and even helped shape them through Disney Studios with his movies and films. 8. In the 1930’s Mickey Mouse and Snow White become very popular. This is very profitable for Walt. Disney Studios was doing extremely well. 9. Disney Studios was successful by appealing to what Americans wanted to see. Quite a bit of what Americans wanted was promoting American values and supporting the wars. 10. Mickey Mouse helped move the transition along between the 19 and 20 centuries.
