Jack Dunham, an animator who worked for Universal and at Disney on such classics as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, has died at the age of 98, according to the blog Cartoon Brew.
Dunham first worked on Oswald shorts at Universal before moving to Disney in the mid-1930s. He worked as an in-betweener on Snow White, then worked as a unit manager at the studio until 1947.
According to notes accompanying a series of interviews on YouTube, Dunham moved to Canada in the 1950s to manage Associated Screen News in Montreal. He produced animated and live-action commercials in Canada for many years before he and his wife were placed in a government-run old-age facility in 2006.
