WILLARD WATERMAN (1914-1995) was an American stage and film actor. He appeared in very few Broadway plays, with only two productions of Mame (1966 & 1983) and a production of The Pajama Game (1973). In film, he has appeared in 80 titles, but he is really most well-known for his radio career. He played the title character in the radio comedy The Great Gildersleeve (1941), a role he would play for seven years. CHARLOTTE MANSON (1917-1996) was a radio actress, known for her parts on radio soap operas, “Society Girl”, “Big Sister”, “Twenty Questions”, “True and False” and many others. Manson made a few screen appearances as well on The Untouchables and The Jackie Gleason Show. BARBRA FULLER (b. 1925) was heard in 25 radio soap operas, including “One Man's Family”. She made her first film appearance as a temptress used for entrapment by the Communist Party in The Red Menace (1949). Her first of many TV appearances was in the "Crime Wave" episode of The Adventures of Superman (1953). Other guest spots included Perry Mason and My Three Sons. Her last acting role was in The Roommates (1973). Fuller was married for a time to Western hero Lash Larue. CORNELIUS J. PEEPLES (1920-1954) was a radio and film actor. He is best known for his roles on the programs “Stepmother”, “Those Happy Gilmans”, and “Tom Mix and His Ralston Straight Shooters”, mainly cast in juvenile roles. He later had a role in the film Julius Caesar (1950). BESS MCCAMMON(1884-1964) was an American actress known for her roles on radio programs such as “The Golden Needle”, “Lone Journey”, “The Romance of Helen Trent”, “Young Doctor Malone” and “Stepmother”. NORMAN ROSS (1895-1953) was an American competition swimmer who won five events at the Inter-Allied Games in June 1919, held at Joinville-Le-Pont near Paris, and three gold medals at the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp, Belgium. He set thirteen world records and won eighteen U.S. national championships during his career. In later years he was a popular Chicago radio personality known to listeners as "Uncle Normie." His son, Norman A Ross Jr. (1922-2008), was a well-known radio and television host, corporate executive and civic leader in Chicago. GERARD DARROW (1933-1980) was a child prodigy. At the age of 5 he was being written about as an ornithology expert. He could identify and name over 1000 bird species. He is perhaps best known as one of the children from the show “Quiz Kids”, where youngsters from the Chicago area would answer difficult questions over the air. He died at the age of 47 due to alcoholism. JOAN BISHOP was a music expert, also featured on the show “Quiz Kids”. As one of the original featured children she was an expert on Brahms and Beethoven. She later became a pianist and singer but never quite reached the fame she aspired for as a child. The final signer cannot be identified. Edges irregular. Left edge torn from book binding.
