A wonderful portrait by Arthur K. Miller. I have met Dick Clark in person many times and he was always cheerful and did a lot for clean-cut teenagers.

Joan Rivers (Joan Alexandra (Molinsky) Rosenberg) was born June 8, 1933 In Brooklyn New York, the daughter or immigrant Russian Jews. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Barnard College and after trying a few other jobs began a career as a stand up comedian at a time when women weren't accepted as stand up comedians. She was always one gutsy lady - breaking into a career that wasn't easy for a woman, recovering and thriving after the suicide of her husband (which left her bankrupt), changing her image and material to reflect current standards, and working until she died. (Not to much all of the plastic surgery!) Joan died on September 4 2014 in Manhattan, New York - not far from where she was born. This is a picture of her with Johnny Carson on the tonight show, early in her career.

A photo of James Scott Bumgarner (James Garner) born April 7, 1928, taken in the 1950's. He was born in Norman, Oklahoma, the youngest of 3 boys. His mother died when he was 5 and he and his brothers went to live with relatives until his father remarried. His relationship with his step-mother was rocky at best, and her actions led to a divorce by his father. He joined the Army during the Korean War and won a Purple Heart during that conflict. After the war, he turned to acting, legally changing his name to "Garner". He is probably best known to Baby Boomers as Bret Maverick on "Maverick" and Jim Rockford in "The Rockford Files". My favorite movie role of his was in "Support Your Local Gunfighter" - he was good looking and funny! James Garner died on July 19, 2014 in Brentwood Hollywood of natural causes. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.

A yearbook photo of James Gandolfini. James is best remembered as playing Tony Soprano in the HBO series "The Sopranos". James was born in Westwood, New Jersey in 1961. Both of his parents were Italian. So perhaps playing a Mafia boss from New Jersey wasn't much of a stretch? He acted in many films, on television, and even on Broadway. He died of natural causes in Rome, Italy, on June 19, 2013. He leaves behind a wife and a son and a daughter.

Jonathan Winters as "Maude Frickert" one of his many hilarious characters. Jonathan Harshman Winters III was born November 11, 1925 in Dayton Ohio. While his grandfather had owned a bank and his father was an investment banker, like many families of the era the Great Depression of the 1930's decimated the family's fortunes. His parents separated and he and his mother moved to Springfield Ohio to live with his grandmother. After serving in the Marines in World War 2, he went on to study cartooning and met his wife (married until her death in 2009), Eileen Schauder. They had two children. After leaving the art career he was pursuing and entering radio, Jonathan broke into television and movies, becoming one of the most famous comedians of his day. His comedic characters ranged from Maude Frickert (shown) to impersonating the voice of President John Kennedy on the Jack Paar show. Another generation of television watchers knew him as "Mearth" the son of the title characters on "Mork and Mindy." He was a comedic hero of Robin Williams. Jonathan died on April 11, 2013 at the age of 87 in Montecito, California. He brought a lot of laughter and joy to generations of Americans and will be sorely missed.

The first televised United States presidential debate was held in Chicago on September 26th, 1960 between Senator John F. Kennedy and Vice President Richard Nixon. There were a total of four televised debates between these two candidates however the first debate gathered the most attention with upwards of 70 million viewers. Most Americans believed that Kennedy had won the first presidential debate. Nixon did not prepare well for the televised event. He had campaigned until a few hours before the debate, refused makeup, and was still recovering from a hospital stay, resulting in his appearing ill. In contrast, Kennedy was well rested, prepared and appeared confident and healthy. While the Kennedy / Nixon presidential debate was the first televised debate, there were previous political debates, most notably the 1858 Senate debates between Abraham Lincoln and Senator Stephen A. Douglas.

Floyd Pepper of the Electric Mayhem band, Dr. Julius Strangepork, Kermit's nephew Robin, and Gonzo's girlfriend Camilla the Chicken.

A photo of Phyllis Diller (born Phyllis Ada Driver) in 1955 as a contestant on the Groucho Marx show, "You Bet Your Life". Phyllis was born July 17, 1917 in Lima Ohio. Although she trained as a musician, she began her show business career in Oakland, California in 1952 on a 15 minute television show called "Phyllis Dillis, the Homely Friendmaker". (Sounds like she was already perfecting her homemaker comedy act!) Her first stand-up act was at the famous Purple Onion in San Francisco, California in 1955. She was famous for making jokes about herself and her husband, "Fang." And for her laugh of course. She pursued a long career as a stand-up comic and in both movies and television, as well as on stage. Her trademark cigarette in a long holder was a prop - she never smoked! Her first husband was Sherwood Anderson Diller, with whom she had 6 children. She was briefly married actor Warde Donovan. Phyllis Ada (Driver) Diller died on August 20, 2012 at home, at age 95,

The famous Julia Child holding a chicken in a kitchen during her television series 'The French Chef'. Prior to becoming a celebrity cooking instructor, Julia was a member of the Office of Strategic Services (since she was too tall to join the Women's Army Corps) during World War II where she met her husband Paul Cushing Child. Paul's transfer would eventually lead the two of them to Paris where Julia's inspiration for a culinary career began. She would soon connect with other French food lovers and they collaborated together for years to eventually produce the 734 page 'Mastering the Art of French Cooking' cookbook. The book's popularity skyrocketed, in large part due to Julia's translation of French recipes into English and her detailed and practical descriptions and images. Her fame spread and Julia Child was picked up by the National Educational Television station in Boston to star in 'The French Chef' which debuted on February 11th, 1963 and lasted for ten years. Julia's career blossomed more as she authored multiple cookbooks and was featured in various television series including 'Cooking with Master Chefs', 'In Julia's Kitchen with Master Chefs', 'Baking With Julia', and 'Julia Child & Jacques Pépin Cooking at Home'. Of course, Julie Child hit a new celebrity status (outside foodies and stay at home cooks) when Saturday Night Live decided to mimic her cooking show, and thanks to the very well received Julie & Julia 2009 film. Julia Child, born Julia Carolyn McWilliams in Pasadena California August 15th 1912, and died August 13th, 2004 of kidney failure in Casa Dorinda, Montecito.
