    I can't say anything about the stationery being real, but the sentiments are. During the early years, The Disney studios were an extremely difficult place for women to break into and almost all were relegated to the ink and paint department. There are only two that I can think of that made it through; Dorothy Blank, who was given story credit on Snow White and Bianca Marjolie who worked in the story department for the shorts, most notably for "Elmer Elephant."

    Nice bit of trivia.

    I was curious about the stationary too, since it did seem rather elaborate, but a quick search on the "googler" produced nothing "official, but seems to confirm that the stationary actually did exist and was used to promote the film around that time

    Here is one of the links I checked out.

    I know in that time, a lot of women who had jobs were secretaries or teachers. As sad as it is, they were not "equals" to men until much, much later like 30 years.

    At least to my untrained eyes, the letter looks legit and not photoshopped, based on the distortions of the type in relation to wrinkles in the paper and what appears to be moisture-related distortions. It is remarkably well preserved though for a 70 year old letter.
