: : others:
: : Maury Thompson (1916-)
: : Ronnie Rondell

: Can someone clue me in on who these "others" were? I don't have my research books at hand and am not connecting with the names.

: --LL

: i may have overlooked his name but how about Andy Devine from the "Buck Benny" routines? what was his years alive?
