A clearer look at 1945

At this address, Kevin Koch from the Animation Guild posted some great pictures of 1945 issues of the Screen Cartoonists Guild's newsletter, The Animator. I thought it would be nice to have a clearer look at the images, hence the images below, with raster screen removed. Be sure to have a look at the Guild's blog and at the original images of the newsletters on the page linked above!

For simplicity, I have copied the captions below the images, a plethora of famous names, like Frank Thomas, Ambi Paliwoda, Bernie Wolf, Rudy Ising, Jules Engel, Frank Onaitis, John Hubley, Rudy Larriva, Manny Gonzales, Bill Hurtz, Bill Hannah and Joe Barbera, Ray Patterson, Ken Muse, Dave Deteige, Jack Parr, Andy Engman and lots of others...(Click to enlarge!)

Note the big smile on Hubley after winning over the Disney team...

Oh man, I just love that shot of the MGM crew. Thanks for letting me see what Ray Patterson (my favorite MGM animator) looked like at his peak!
