Welcome! And a special hello to new subscribers - how good to find you here! Today’s issue is short, beginning with early photos, and stories you may have read before but which bear repeating. Photos of Summer School are from the Nekbakht Foundation and the comments by Shamcher were part of his biographical information. This section is followed by a short piece from “Fairy Tales are True”.
One note on the Tale of Irma Clark - this is a true story. Her real name was Dixie Paul.
Thanks Carol. Great photo too 🙂
Thanks so much for this one on Early Days--just lovely, and great to see the pictures!
Would Hayat Standlinger have been in any of those old photos? I don't know if/when she was there.
And yet, he was not at all tall! Must have been on his toes...
As you may faintly recall, I was given Shamcher’s suit jacket and vest by Daphne, which I later had tailored (the sleeves let out) so that it would fit my arms well. I have worn it a number of times! Thus, my guess is that he stood about 5 ft 4 in.
