Ross -
My E-mail to the address you left in the guest book bounced, so I am hoping that you will check the Forum. This is a question that comes up a lot (maybe I should put it in the FAQ).

No, we are pretty certain that Quentin (mentioned in Milt Josefsberg's biography) was not Frank Nelson. Frank was an incredibly kind and gentle man, and next year I will be printing a previously unpublished interview that I did with him in 1984.

There has been a LOT of speculation about this question. It probably wasn't any of the regular cast, as they were all at Jack's funeral. The best guess I've heard thus far is that it was Mahlon Merrick, Jack's music director. However, I don't have confirmation on that.
