too many JBR clippings in the books; he was perhaps losing
interest in the books, or began another scrap book lost to history.
Also this may from been around the time they opened the Miami
Club and were busy running it and the touring companies.
half of these were just stuck into the books, as opposed
to being pasted in, limiting conclusions that can be drawn about
their dates, based on surrounding ones.
the next page I also show clippings I found from the net.
the above Pittsburgh ad, which I have been able to "date"
at 6/20/50, says
"Direct from the Club Jewel Box Miami." The Miami club was
still in business until
the end of 1950. Also, the ad below says "Direct from The Town
& Country Club,
New York City." I think this was referring to a prior venue.
a very cool photo...of the Tic Toc Club in Milwaukee...wish there
had been more of these
The photo was not dated, but I'm thinking judging from the cast it
was from 1952 or 1953
"Friday, December 19th" could be 1947 or 1952...I'm betting
on 1947, as it's not billed as "Jewel Box Revue"
June 22nd" could be 1953, or 1959...I would choose 1953 due to
Jackie Maye's inclusion
the mailing addresses changes from two
in Miami, to two in NYC and then to Long Island.
comment about "dating" the programs is that I don't think
they were intended necessarily
to represent who was in the cast at that time. Rightfully so, they
often highlighted photos of their
past star performers. For example, I have had the pleasure of interviewing
one of their performers,
Terry Noel, and know that she was in the company only from early 1959
to early 1960 (after which
she moved to the 82 Club). But her photo is found in the last five

and TC's photos can be
found in the very last program. So the program with the black cover
is no earlier than 1959.
If anyone can help me put dates to some of these programs, I would
Danny & Doc changed their own photos in the programs as time went
on. The first photo
above was used in the first four programs, and in the Club Jewel Box
program. The second
appeared in programs #5 and #6 (as I number them) only. The third
photo was only in the
black program, #7, and the last photo was in all the remaining ones.
I picture one other
program beside their photos, which, if I owned it, would fall in my
after #5. I would love it if someone could provide me with large scans
of the pages (or of
course better yet, a copy of it). And if there are programs not shown
above, please let me
know, as I would like this information to be as complete as possible.
is info from the Social Security Death Index. They had retired to

their Social Security

they probably applied for them
at the same time.
