IRON RIVER-A memorial service for Shirlee (Tegge) Stoker will be held Aug. 6, 2010 at 2 p.m. Family and friends will gather at the family gravesite in Resthaven Cemetery.
Shirlee passed away on June 12, 2010 in Simi Valley, Calif. She was born in Iron River on Aug. 6, 1926 to Albert and Esther Tegge and attended Iron River Schools, graduating in 1945. Shirlee became a Powers Model and later worked in theatre, television and movies. She was crowned Miss U.S.A. in 1949. She was preceded in death by her parents and a sister "Peaches" Elaine.
Shirlee is survived by her daughter Jesse of California; a sister Marilyn (Merlin) Gorowsky of St. Paul, Minn.; and a brother Richard (Lucille) Tegge of Crystal Falls.
Family and friends will gather at Hagerman Lake Park for a picnic following the service.

WEIRD NEWS (Wireless News Flash) from Sep 11 2003 "Meet 'Miss 3-D'"
Simi Valley, CA -- A former actress and model who played "Miss 3-D" in a promo for the first major 3-D film is finally getting her due.
Half a century ago, Shirlee Tegge Stoker was hired to prance around with puppets Beany and Cecil in a short film explaining 3-D technology.
The film ran before the feature, "Bwana Devil" -- a movie which ushered in the golden age of 3-D in the 1950s. However, Ms. Stoker missed the premiere of the movie because she was stuck in New York on a modeling assignment
Now 76, Stoker is getting a second chance: She'll be attending a screening of both movies next Tuesday (Sep. 16) as part of the world's largest 3-D film festival.
It's truly a redo for Stoker, because the screening will be at the same theater as the premiere was: Hollywood's Egyptian Theatre.
The sassy senior says she's "delighted to be recycled after 50 years," but admits the job as Miss 3-D was just "a days work for me."

BOOK: BUSTER KEATON: CUT TO THE CHASE: A BIOGRAPHY by Marion Meade copyright 1995 page 240
Two weeks later Buster's own show, a half-hour program sponsored by Studebaker, premiered on the CBS local affiliate KTTV. The Buster Keaton Show received superb reviews, including coverage in Life that marveled at his pratfalls. A regular on the show was Shirlee Tegge, a blond beauty queen who had won the Miss USA contest that year.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0853910/ This website shows a listing of the films she was in from 1950-1955 with one later listing in 1961. Most notable are Strangers on a Train (1951) Alfred Hitchcock where she plays an uncredited girl, With A Song in My Heart (1952) where she is a cigarette girl, Half Way To Hell (1961) where she plays Joanne. It also notes that she was on TV shows I Love Lucy and The Abbott & Costello Show.

http://www.nitroactive.net/fifties_hrmags.html This website says she is shown in Hot Rod Magazine June 1951 "Parts With Appeal featuring Shirlee Tegge".

Joe,

   Did I put Lori on the cover of the Sept. '87 issue, or just feature her inside? Can't recall, which worries me a little. You'd think I wouldn't have forgotten her.

The family wishes to thank again the medical team that supported and comforted Allan and their family. Allan was a courageous, dignified, gentle man to the end. He was larger than life.

During that period, he was awarded the title of "Mr. Canada" in a competition established by the International Federation of Body Builders (1948). He later earned a PhD in Psychology from McGill (1959), became a faculty member and Professor of Psychology at the University of Western Ontario (1963 until his retirement), and was Professor Emeritus in the Psychology Department and the Brain and Mind Institute at UWO.

He remained an internationally respected scientist and scholar for his entire life. His passion, brilliant mind, noble character, and sense of humour will be immensely missed by his family (including nephews, Don and Alan, and nieces Benita, Caroline, and Jean), and also his many friends, colleagues, and graduate students. A celebration of Allan's life will be held in the fall, date to be announced. To share online condolences, please visit www. ontariocremationservices.com.13071123

March 30, 2008 Douglas Kent Hall died. Born Dec 12, 1938

From Wiki:

Hall and his wife moved from London to New York City in 1968. He continued to photograph rock and roll stars, which resulted in the publication of Rock: A World Bold as Love, released later in paperback as The Superstars: In Their Own Words.[7] In New York, Hall continued writing. He published his first novel, On the Way to the Sky, in 1972.[8] This book fictionalized Hall's childhood years in Vernal, Utah, and his relatives. Hall's time spent in the world of rock and roll led to his novel Rock and Roll Retreat Blues, published in 1974.[9]

While driving across the country with Alfred Bush in 1969, Hall shot his first Passing series. In 1971 he developed the first negatives for Passing II. The idea of time and the photograph continued to deepen and became the guiding influence behind his total photographic output.[6]

Hall's marriage to Claire dissolved in 1970. He returned briefly to Portland, Oregon, and worked doing commercial photography jobs and writing. He met his future second wife, Dawn Claire Davidson, a fashion coordinator, in May 1971. The following December the two moved to New York and set up residence and studio in a loft on 21st Street and 7th Avenue.[1]

In the 1970s Hall lived in New York but spent much time traveling. His work included writing a book about rodeo titled Let Er Buck; writing and codirecting a feature documentary film about rodeo titled The Great American Cowboy, which won an Academy Award for Best Feature-Length Documentary; and publishing a photography book titled Rodeo, which was followed in the early 1980s by another book about cowboys, this one about ranch cowboys, titled Working Cowboys. Mark Strand writes, "These cowboys, as opposed to urban cowboys, drugstore cowboys, rodeo cowboy, or movie cowboys, stay on horseback all day long working cattle. And when they stand in front of the camera—in Hall's best photos, they are standing, looking straight into the camera lens—their detached way of life shows."[10] The 1970s also saw the publication of Hall's second novel, Rock and Roll Retreat Blues. In 1974, Hall exhibited his photographs for the first time, at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. The exhibition and accompanying catalog, Photography in America, is where the public first viewed his photograph Mesquite, Texas.[11]

During the latter half of the 1970s and the early 1980s, Hall worked on books collaboratively. In 1975 Hall's literary agent, Bob Dattila, asked him if he would be interested in working on a project with bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger. Hall and Schwarzenegger published two books, Arnold: The Education of a Bodybuilder and Arnold's Bodyshaping for Women. Arnold: The Education of a Bodybuilder was on the New York Times Best Seller list for eleven weeks in 1978.[12] In 2002, Sports Illustrated included the Hall/Schwarzenegger collaboration as number 71 on their "Top 100 Sports Books of All Time".[13] During the writing and photographing of Bodyshaping for Women, Hall became acquainted with female bodybuilder Lisa Lyon; the friendship led to the publication of their Lisa Lyon's BodyMagic.[14] The Incredible Lou Ferrigno, with bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno, rounded out Hall's collaborative publishing ventures with bodybuilders.[15]

Sorry, do not know the span. I suspect David Gentile may know both of these situations.

Do you know how much two shillings would be worth today?

I saw that Ray and Peter were commenting on John Valentine distributing magazines in England. This is a postcard from John Valentine to Angelo Iuspa dated April 5, 1961 so it will be 59 years ago tomorrow. I may have some more letters from John Valentine. These letters could be filed with the British correspondence to Angelo.-Michael

in those days you got 20 shillings to the pound. 2 shillings today would be 20 pence. thare is  100 penies to the pound due to decimilastion. in the 60s there were 240 penies to the pound. in the 60s i pound was equal to  4 dollars. so 2 shillings was ridicously cheap for iron man mag.
