1950 payment to trendy Palm Springs architect William Cody
Description  

Personal check, 8.25 x 3, filled out by Disney’s secretary Dolores Voght and signed by Disney, “Walter E. Disney,” payable to William F. Cody for $500, June 20, 1950. Ink notation in the memo field reads, “An account—Architecture office.” In fine condition, with a central vertical fold and expected bank stamps and cancellation holes (affecting the first two letters of the signature). A friend of Disney and other media moguls, William F. Cody was an influential desert modern architect who found success designing country clubs, hotels, and church projects during California’s influx of affluent residents throughout the 1940s and 1950s. Disney himself owned a Cody-designed home in Smoke Tree Ranch, which he later sold to finance his greatest vision, Disneyland. Pre-certified Phil Sears.
