BOBBY (ROBERT) TROUP
The singer, songwriter and actor signs this black and white headshot with an inscription to a fan, telling her not to give up on school
Inscribed photograph signed: "To Irene/Education is a must!/Don't/give up!/Bobby Troup" in black felt. 8x10. Bobby Troup (1918-1999) was probably best known for writing the song "Route 66", which became a hit for Nat King Cole in the 1940s. A Marine captain during World War II, he was the first white officer to be given command of an all-black unit in Jackson, North Carolina; he improved conditions for his men in what was then the pre-Civil Rights South. Troup was mainly a composer, songwriter and pianist. He released his own albums in the 1950s, but none of these was quite as successful as "Route 66", which by then had become a standard. Troup also had numerous movie and TV appearances between 1950 and 1985, including a role as Dr. Joe Early on Emergency! (1972-1979). Fine condition.
