****This comes from the collection of a woman names Lottie, who in the 1940's worked in the food service / catering industry that serviced various west coast USO events. She carried with her an over sized scrapbook, in which she would have any celebrity that she met at the events autograph.
She continued this practice through the 1950's, when she worked in a Los Angeles restaurant. , There, she would also have regular customers and relatives that she liked sign the pages. It has been a challenge to save what signatures we could from this fascinating yet jumbled collection.
