Disney legend, Rolly Crump, started out as a Disney animation inbetweener in 1952. Originally Eric Larson's key assistant, Walt recruited the talented artist to become part of WED Enterprises. Crump was a key It's A Small World designer and fabricator. He worked closely with Mary Blair, who created the overall look for the attraction. He also designed Tower of the Four Winds marquee, a towering metal mobile sculpture that graced the It's A Small World attraction at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. When the attraction was moved to Anaheim, Crump conceived the gold & white color scheme and designed the animated clock in front of Disneyland's It's A Small World (1966).
One of the first Imagineers (WED Enterprises), Crump was a key designer on many of Disneyland's projects. He developed many of the original illusions for the Haunted Mansion and sculpted the Tiki Gods & many of the birds for the Enchanted Tiki Room. Crump also contributed to the original plans for Walt Disney World in Florida. He continues to work as an artist & designer in Fallbrook, California.
