Harper Goff

Harper Goff (March 16, 1911 – March 3, 1993) Considered the “Second Imagineer” after Walt himself, Harper Goff started working on Walt’s “Disneylandia” project as early as 1951, during pre-production work on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. While “Disneylandia”, Walt’s original Americana-inspired traveling show, was not to be, Walt’s basic idea would develop into what would ultimately become Disneyland. Goff’s well-known contributions to Disneyland include early design work for Main Street and the Jungle Cruise, and Goff would also later provide concept artwork for Epcot Center’s World Showcase. Goff’s contributions to the history of the Walt Disney Studios and Disney Parks have established him as a fan-favorite Imagineer and earned him the title of Disney Legend.
