Pioneering animator Ollie Johnston has died at the age of 95. The last of the team of animators dubbed the "nine old men" by Walt Disney, well before any had become old men, Johnston worked as a Disney animator from 1935 to 1978. His work included significant contributions to everything from Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs and Fantasia to The Rescuers. A nice tribute with links to more remembrances can be found here.
