Progressland, 1965) An employee orientation manual for the Walt Disney-designed General Electric Progressland exhibit at the 1964-65 World's Fair. The 86-page document is housed in a blue vinyl and board 3-ring binder stamped in gold ink with "Orientation Manual" and the Progressland logo on the front cover. The content consists of a schedule for the three-week orientation and training period, information on the history of General Electric, GE and Progressland fact sheets, background and descriptions of the various Progressland attractions, including the Carousel of Progress, job descriptions, rules and regulations, descriptions of various administrative and practical procedures, crowd control, and more. This rare manual provides a fascinating look behind the scenes of one of the most well-attended and technologically innovative public exhibitions ever mounted. Measuring 11.5"x10", the piece is in very good condition. The binder exhibits some surface impressions, stickiness from the off gassing of the vinyl with attendant particle pick-up and soiling. The content shows faint toning and some breached punch holes.
