Encyclopedia > Jack Wrather

Jack Wrather (May 24, 1918 - November 12, 1984) was a television director and producer, best known for producing The Lone Ranger and Lassie television series in the 1950s. Wrather, born in Amarillo, Texas, was also the owner of the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, California and the RMS Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, until they were both acquired by Disney in 1989. Jack Wrather also owned the Inn at the Park in Anaheim, and in the 70s there was talk of the Disneyland-Alweg monorail being expanded to stop there as well. That never came to fruition and the Inn at the Park has switched hands numerous times over the years and is currently being refurbished by Sheraton. The RMS Queen Mary has since been sold by Disney.
