Roy E. Disney Passes Away
Disney, the nephew of Walt Disney who became a powerful behind-the-scenes
influence on the family business, has died. He was 79. Clifford A. Miller, a
spokesman for Roy Disney's company Shamrock Holdings, told the Los Angeles
Times that Disney died Wednesday after a bout with cancer. His father, Roy
O. Disney, and uncle, Walt, founded The Walt Disney Co. in the 1920s. Walt
was the company's creative genius but Roy Disney's father played a vital
role as head of its financial side. The younger Disney, born in 1930, worked
for the company as a writer and producer. But his most important influence
was as a Disney shareholder who led two investor revolts. In 1984 he led a
successful campaign to oust Walt Disney's son-in-law from the company.
Nearly 20 years later, he launched another successful shareholder revolt
against Michael Eisner.
