The Wrather's had a partner in the ownership of the Disneyland Hotel. The Disneyland Hotel was owned by Jack and Bonita Wrather, Mazie Wrather (Jack's mother) and Helen Alvarez who was also a partner to Mr. Wrather in television and radio stations. The earliest Disneyland Hotel items say Wrather-Alvarez Hotels, Inc. These items are very rare and date back between 1955 and 1958. Jack and Helen's relationship was quite strained and he bought her out in 1958. BTW-Helen Alvarez is still alive.
