 “[for] bringing to youngsters the spirit of innocent childhood, and bringing to oldsters a bit of their second childhood.” – USC President Rufus B. von KleinSmid

On June 4, 1938, to honor Walt Disney’s many artistic achievements, especially after the release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the University of Southern California presented him with an honorary master of science degree. This was the first of three honorary degrees Walt would receive, with the second and third coming from Harvard and Yale.
