Walt Disney Elected Chairman
of
WED (Walt Disney Imagineering)!
Triple-Authenticated Walt Disney Signed Company Legal Document!


An extremely rare document officially recognizing Walt Disney as the Chairman of what is now Walt Disney
Imagineering!  Before Disneyland, the notion of building an amusement park without a Ferris Wheel or Roller coaster seemed like a losing proposition to many, therefore the startup money for Disneyland came from Walt Disney personally, not Walt Disney Productions.  So Walt Disney formed a separate company to design Disneyland and it's attractions.  Walt Disney named his theme park design company WED Enterprises, WED being the initials of his full name, Walter Elias Disney.  Today WED Enterprises is known as Walt Disney Imagineering.

This February 1960 official Minutes of a Meeting of the WED Board of Directors formalizes the election of Walt Disney as Chairman of WED and his daughters Diane Disney Miller and Sharon Brown as Vice Presidents. 

Walt Disney has personally signed this legal document, and WED's Secretary Royal Clark has countersigned it as witness.  Younger brother of famous "Walt's 9 Old Men" animator Les Clark, Royal Clark worked his way up from the Disney Studio's shipping department and mailroom.  He became Walt Disney's personal accountant and in 1952 he joined WED Enterprises as its Secretary-Treasurer, eventually becoming Executive Vice President.  He worked for the Walt Disney Company for 43 years, retiring in 1984.  He also served as Vice President of Walt Disney's privately owned company, Retlaw Enterprises.  As part of WED (Disney Imagineering) his contribution was considered so important he was given his own window on Main Street at Disneyland.  

This rare document is TRIPLE authenticated:  It includes the JSA/James Spence Letter of Authenticity, the R & R Auctions Certificate of Authenticity, and of course the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity.  This typed original  is in excellent condition with only two minor edges tears less than 1/8".  Measures 8.5" x 11".  Includes an 8" x 10" color photo suitable for framing.  Item # 1245, $8995
