Collier’s was known as a magazine for social reform, and the article featuring the Disney characters was no different; Mickey, Donald, and Goofy were the illustration for the article “Why Your Car is Safe” by Captain Eddie V. Rickenbacker. The characters were used for all sorts of articles and advertisements around the 1930s, when they were in the height of their popularity.
