I have read several books about Uncle Walt. Since he did not write an autobigraphy all that is written about him is hearsay. You have to take into account that he lived from 1901 to 1966, a very tumultuous time in this country. Like any person Uncle Walt had role models in his life who shaped the man he would become. Trying to judge a person is like trying to tell if the glass is half full or half empty. In reality, only Uncle Walt knows what was in his heart and no one can ask him now. Several things are certain about Uncle Walt, he was a visionary and did not suffer fools. He could be gentle and kind to his family, and cruel and uncaring to his employees, or so it seemed. As for all the rumors, why can't we let Uncle Walt rest in peace?
