Today's NEWS-6/26/40

LA Evening Herald Express, Harrison Carroll: “Appearance of the Arnazes at Slapsie Maxie’s, and other spots, has caused quite a little guessing among the stay-up-laters about the state of her romance with another man she had been seeing for quite some time. Don’t forget, Lucille is to appear with Arnaz in Too Many Girls. The association may be just a build up for the picture. The studio denies it; but, then, it WOULD,” published this date in 1940.

LA Evening Herald Express, Harrison Carroll: “Lucille Ball’s step-grandmother, Mrs. C. J. Peterson, died two days ago, 6/25, at 86, in Jamestown NY - Lucille, working in Ziegfeld Follies, can’t go to the funeral,” published this date, 6/27, in 1944.

 

 

Lucille Ball’s step-grandmother Peterson, (unknown birthdate); (puritanical; strict disciplinarian, who covered mirrors to prevent Lucille from becoming vain; molded Lucille into a good student, with good grades, self-reliance and an active imagination. Lucille grew to greatly love her, remembering the lunches packed for her school day; and who was always there when Lucille needed ‘someone’. Lucille tried to get Grandma Peterson to move to California with the family; but, failed in the effort), dies this date, 6/25, in 1944.
