Mickey Maus Gas Maske on Flickr by By Polly Roger
On January 7th, 1942, one month after Pearl Harbor, T.W. Smith, Jr., the owner of the Sun Rubber Company, and his designer, Dietrich Rempel, with Walt Disney’s approval introduced a protective mask for children.Other comic book character designs were to follow, depending on the success of the Mickey Mouse mask.
The mask was designed so children would carry it and wear it as part of a game.
This would reduce the fear associated with wearing a gas mask and hopefully, improve their wear time and, hence, survivability.
