Mother Nature & Disney Educational Films
To keep the Studio going during the challenging rebuilding years of the late 1940s, Walt and his artists utilized their experience producing training films during the war to create instructional films and materials with an entertaining appeal. Delivered on 10/18/46, "The Story of Menstruation" was one of the earliest projects from the newly formed "Educational Films" division created at Disney Studios. Produced with the Kotex Corporation, this classroom classic has been seen by generations of health education students! Though directed by a man (Ed Benedict), Story Artist Sylvia Holland created extensive concept artwork for this timeless short, and a variety of drybrush, airbrush and inking techniques were applied by the artists of Ink & Paint!
