This Disney employee manual from 1943 is pretty interesting and also pretty sexist

In 1943, World War II affected every facet of the country, and Walt Disney Studios wasn't immune. This training manual, drawn by animator Tom Oreb, was meant for new employees and it shows how strong the influence the War had on everyday life at Disney– encouraging employees to buy war bonds, paid time off for servicemen, it's all in there.

The manual also shows how ridiculously sexist things were back then. Sorry, no women in the Penthouse Club! Also, if you look closely at most of the manual, there's a ton of pictures of our main character gawking at the woman in the red dress.
