Do you remember....?

I'm in the process of digging out what information I can from
a variety of sources about an informal theater group in Ketchikan
in the 1950s. Their director was a man named Rex King, who I
believe is deceased now, a professional actor who was also a
junior high teacher in Ketchikan. And I'm hoping to contact a
member of that troupe named Shawn Crawford. Anyone who ever met
that red-haired dynamo will remember her! Her husband owned the
gas station ion the West end, as I recall. She and Liz Snyder
put on wonderful shows upstairs at the Elks Club. If anyone has
any memories or information about those actors and their productions,
would you please contact me? I hate to see any these stories
of Ketchikan's past lost forever.
