2006 Tom Nabbe

The last time Tom Nabbe paid to get into a Disney park, it was July 18, 1955 -- the first day Walt Disney opened his new park to the public. Tom was a rusty-haired 12-year-old, enjoying his day at Disneyland. The very next day he landed a job as a “newsie,” hawking The Disneyland News to Main Street Guests. In 1956, Walt recognized the Tom Sawyer in young Tom, and he began appearing in the park as Mark Twain’s paragon of American boyhood. After outgrowing the role, Tom went on to manage other attractions. In 1971, Tom was transferred to Walt Disney World, where he started as manager of the Monorail. He also helped in the opening of Disneyland Paris. After 48 years with Disney, Tom retired from his job as manager of distribution services at Walt Disney World. He was the last working member of Club 55, a group of original Disneyland Cast Members.
