Biography   Les Clark

Les Clark (November 17, 1907 - September 12, 1979) was the first of Disney's Nine Old Men. Joining Disney in 1927, he was the only one to work on the origins of Mickey Mouse with Ub Iwerks.

Walt Disney complimented Les on the lettering he made for the menus on the mirrors at the candy store.  Two years later in 1927, about to graduate from Venice High School, Clark got up the nerve to ask Walt for a job. "Bring some of your drawings in and let's see what they look like," he recalled Walt saying. A t the Hyperion studio in the Silver Lake area east of Hollywood, Clark showed his samples, which he admitted were freehand copies of cartoons in College Humor But Walt admired his "swift, deft" graphic line and hired him.
