Old Books, Fresh Eyes
A new Blog
Lois Nettleton's niece inherited Lois' book collection and has decided to do something contructive with them. "For too long, the books sat neglected on my shelf. They deserve a closer look as a window into the artistic and cultural climate of 1950s, 60s and 70s. This blog is intended to give fresh eyes to these old books and learn something along the way."

VERY Early Shep
and first love Dawn Strickland
Steve Glazer has been doing a lot of research into who is fact and fiction in Shep's stories and in recent weeks we have added a lot of content in the people section. (See "What's New" in the bottom of the next column) He was able to make contact with Dawn Strickland's son. According to Shep on his 8-6-69 show, she lived across the street and was his 'first love'. Shep is the kid holding the football with the signiture cleft in his chin. Shep always spoke of living on Cleveland Street, but he was born in Chicago where he lived until mid Kindergarten and then lived in East Chicago, Indiana where he met Dawn. He then moved to Cleveland St in Hammond to start 2nd grade.
