2 by Hubley and Save NUMMI

Animator John Hubley is known not only for his many contributions to the art of the moving graphic image in the United States, but for being a good friend and ally to progressive and pro-labor causes. Hubley was one of many animators at Disney that left the studio during the contentious labor strike of 1941 who would subsequently help form United Productions of America (UPA). At UPA, Hubley was responsible for playing a significant role in defining the innovative house style of the studio, but was later forced to resign from the company after refusing to cooperate with the House Committee on Un-American Activities. By the late 1950s, he would form Storyboard Studios with his wife, Faith, where the pair would continue to produce award-winning animation until his death in 1977.
