Interview with Disney Chairman & CEO Michael Eisner
Event Date: October 5, 1999

Parade magazine Editor Walter Anderson interviews Disney Chairman & CEO Michael Eisner as part of a series of interviews known as "It's About Time." The goal is to create a record that gives viewers a sense of America at the turn of the millennium and what we thought about. Eisner is asked to consider what we should have in mind as we enter the next century; what are the moral, academic and technological challenges we must face; and how should we face them.
