Comments: This window was dedicated to long time Disney employee Dick Nunis on June 28, 1999. Nunis's career with The Walt Disney Company spanned 44 years. Dick was getting his masters degree in Education from the University of Southern California and needed a summer job. He got a job as an hourly orientation-training instructor shortly before the opening of Disneyland on July 17, 1955. In 1961, after serving at DL in a variety of positions, Dick was named director of park operations, and in 1968 he was promoted to vice president of operations. Dick became executive vice president of Disneyland and Walt Disney World Vacation Kingdom in 1972 and was named president of Walt Disney Attractions in 1980, a position he held until his promotion in 1991 to Chairman of Walt Disney Attractions. On May 26, 1999, (his 44th anniversary with The Walt Disney Company) Dick officially retired as chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts. He served on The Walt Disney Company Board of Directors from 1981 to 1998 and in a director emeritus role through 2000.
