The Donald Gledhill animation project collection spans the years 1936-1949 (bulk 1937-1940) and
encompasses 1.5 linear feet. The collection consists entirely of material gathered by Gledhill in the
late 1930s for an introductory book on the mechanics of animation. There are animation cels, sketches,
and drawings for the never-realized book whose working title was "How to Make Animated Cartoons."
Donald F. Gledhill was an American executive. He served as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and
Sciences executive secretary from 1934 to 1943 and was married to Margaret Buck (who later became
Margaret Herrick) from 1931 to 1945.
