This window is for the WED Model Shop - Bob Sewell ran the Model Shop from 1960 until he retired in 1981.  Malcolm Cobb was Bob's assistant at the Model Shop.

And Mitz?  No clue.  Model shop, I'm sure, but I can't find any other details!

Hope you've enjoyed this weeks history lesson!

I kept finding this great story about Jack Fergus that I wanted to share-
"[Disney artist] Jack [Fergus] belonged to a club called the “Tip-Top Club,” which was anybody over 6 foot 6 inches. I can tell you a funny story about Jack because we were assistants together at that point in my career. We were walking down the main hall in the animation building one day coming back from lunch. He had such an incredible arm span he was dragging his finger tips on both sides of the wall as we came back in the building. Walt Disney had just gotten out of the elevator and was coming our way. He looked and saw Jack and he said, “ Jesus Christ!” Jack was a very, very big man. "
Fred Joerger was a member of the original model shop for Disney and today he's a Disney Legend.
