The Society for Explorers and Adventurers (S.E.A.) was a centuries-old collective of globetrotters which included pilot Jock Lindsey among its members in the 20th century. In 1929, the Society expelled Professor Garret Reed, a minor rival of Jones, amidst accusations of tomb raiding to line his pockets. When Lindsey established a waterfront bar in Florida in the 1940s, he invited fellow Society members to join him there for drinks.
Behind the scenes Edit
The Society of Explorers and Adventurers is a story concept created by Walt Disney Imagineering in 2001 as part of the Tokyo DisneySea park, which in turn was inspired by the Adventurers' Club bar at Downtown Disney's Pleasure Island. Two members of the club, Harrison Hightower III and Lord Henry Mystic, were made the focus of Tokyo DisneySea's Tower of Terror and Hong Kong Disneyland's Mystic Manor respectively. Artwork of Hightower visiting the Lost River Delta, home to the Temple of the Crystal Skull can be seen in Tower of Terror's queue. Jones and the Society crossed paths again within backstory materials created for a Halloween overlay of Hong Kong Disneyland's Jungle Cruise titled Curse of the Emerald Trinity, with the story's central character having become an enemy to both in his pursuit of supernatural artifacts.
