Jeff is helping a legendary Disney Imagineer Rolly Crump write his memoirs, and rather than wrestle with Disney archives for access to photos of Crump's work, he's hoping fans will be able to supply them.
He writes, "We need your help, oh great citizens of the Internet! I'm writing a book with former Disney Imagineer Rolly Crump, and we're looking for some old photos for it that you may have in your collection.
We're looking for stuff from his time at Disney (such as Adventureland Bazaar in 1963, Tower of Four Winds, The Enchanted Tiki Room in the 60s, It's A Small World at World's Fair, The Land in 1980s) and his outside work (like Bear-y Tales at Knott's Berry Farm, Circus World, and Busch Gardens).
Anything that Rolly has brought to life, we'd love to see your photos of it.
We will gladly give you credit AND a signed copy of the book if we use your images!"
