Walt Disney moved to Kansas City with his family in 1911—nearly a year after J.C. Hall began growing his own bustling business in the very same city.
Although the two men never crossed paths in these early years, Disney worked as a paperboy and delivered daily to the home of Elizabeth Diddly, Hall’s future wife. Walt Disney and J.C. Hall eventually developed a genuine friendship after Mickey Mouse became a licensed character for Hallmark Cards.
This bit of trivia can be found on the Hallmark website.
