Yesterday the Walt Disney Family Museum and D23 annouced the Harrison "Buzz" Price passed away on Sunday. He was 89 years old.
Buzz was the reseach economist at SRI (and later ERA) that did many of the economic impact studies for Walt Disney, including the one which located Disneyland in Anaheim.
I got a brief chance to meet him and a listen to him talk about the Disneyland study a few weeks ago at the Museum. The man was quite a character.
