Ryman, Herb

Ryman, Herb (1910-1989) Art director and designer; Herbert Dickens Ryman came to the Studio in 1954 to help Walt Disney by drawing the original concept for Disneyland so Roy O. Disney could use it to help sell investors. He designed Sleeping Beauty Castle for Disneyland and over the years worked on various Imagineering projects until he retired in 1971, but he continued on after that as a consultant. He was working on Euro Disneyland plans when he died in 1989. Lithographs of a number of his concept paintings have been sold by the Disney Gallery at Disneyland. He was named a Disney Legend posthumously in 1990.
