Ollie in 2005

I received this holiday greeting card from the Johnston family in 2005. 
Ollie had just received the National Medal of Arts at a White House ceremony. Other recipients that year included actor Robert Duvall and singer Dolly Parton. 
Ollie said he looked at this award as a tribute to all the animators who had worked with Walt Disney.
He passed away in April of 2008 at the age of 95.
