Abstract:

Details the life and career of the Disney executive, featuring personal memories, stories, photographs, drawings, and artifacts.

"This funny, enlightening, and inspiring collection of stories paints a unique picture of Roy E. Disney. More scrapbook than biography, Remembering Roy E. Disney draws a poignant picture of a man revered and idolized by legions of Disney fans, and admired and cared about by all those that had the honor to know him, to be part of his inner circle. Author David A. Bossert had the opportunity to work closely and travel around the world with Roy during the last fifteen years of his life. Dubbed by a former Disney artist 'the richest man in the trailer park,' Roy was a constant source of surprise. His regular-guy, down-to-earth nature was not necessarily expected considering his brand name and position within the company's history. Filled with personal memories from Bossert and others who knew Roy well, along with photos and artifacts collected along the way, Remembering Roy E. Disney reveals a fuller picture of a special man."
