“Forgotten Hollywood”- Mount Vernon to Mount Prospect!

Manny P. here…

   I monitor newswires (as part of my radio experience). Here’s one from the “You’re not gonna believe this” Department…469px-Stuart-george-washington-constable-1797

   The New York Society Library (one of the Big Apple’s oldest locations) found in its ledgers two missing books that were checked out by the Father of our Country. You guessed it… George Washington is delinquent on returning Law of Nations, and a volume of debates from Britain’s House of Commons. Needless to say, if he were alive today, Washington would owe a hefty fine, since the books were due back on November 2, 1789!! Actually the library isn’t concerned about the fines, but would love to have the books returned. By the way, John Jay, Aaron Burr, and Alexander Hamilton also checked out books from this historic location. (I wonder what their library cards are worth?)…


   I’m pleased to announce the addition of a new library location for Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History…And it’s in President Barack Obama’s home state. The Mount Prospect Public Library is the latest home for my paperback. According to their website:

Mount library

The Mount Prospect Public Library is a mid-size, independent public library, located in the Village of Mount Prospect, Illinois, located about 20 miles northwest of Chicago. Currently over 61,000 patrons are registered cardholders. The collection has approximately 497,000 items on file, with an annual circulation figure of over 1 million.
