Tombstone Wednesday!


I found another tombstone I hadn't uncovered!  Hope you enjoy!


Drink a Toast to Our Friend Ken
Fill Your Glass And Don't Say "When"

Disney Legend, Ken Anderson began his career with Disney in 1934, when he randomly pulled over to The Walt Disney Studios and applied for a job!  He served as Art Director on many projects, including Snow White, Pinocchio, and Fantastia.  

His work in planning at Disneyland contributed to Peter Pan's Flight, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, and of course, the Haunted Mansion.  

Ken continued working with Disney (WDI) after his 1978 retirement, even collaborating the one-time expected Africa Pavilion at EPCOT.

Focused on the Magic

    I bet a lot of his ideas on the Africa Pavilion ended up in the Animal Kingdom and the Animal Kingdom Lodge. It would be interesting to see his concept art. Great pic.
