Ruby Keeler centennial

This post is a few days early, but I'm going bush and will be many miles from an internet. Ruby turns 100 on August 25th. There are some references (incl. wiki) that notably put her birthyear at 1910, but other sources, including TCM, date it at 1909. I'm fairly certain it's the latter. One of these days I'll investigate the Halifax newspapers and see if there was ever a birth notice posted.

The blog has been sadly neglected the past few months, but this is a reminder that I am still working on my dedicated Ruby Keeler website, and suspect I'll have a ton of new material ready to go on that in the next half year. I'll keep you posted...

Happy Birthday Ruby!!!!!!!!!!!!
