St. Louis Walk of Fame: 140 Great St. Louisans
Makes a great gift for friends or clients, a memorable souvenir or a dynamic addition to your coffee table!
“I didn’t know the Rockettes started out in St. Louis! I didn’t know Bob Gibson was a Harlem Globetrotter! I didn’t know Clark Terry made a trumpet out of a garden hose! I didn’t know Washington University’s Robert Brookings founded the Brookings Institution! I didn’t know Betty Grable’s legs were insured for $1 million!”
These are just a few of the exclamations one can hear from the mouth of someone reading the St. Louis Walk of Fame book. This attractive and informative book features historic photographs and concise, incisive biographies of all 140 great St. Louisans who have a star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame.
The book explains the nomination and selection processes and showcases fascinating full‑color photographs of the induction ceremonies over the past 25 years; Phyllis Diller’s expression is one to behold. There are also many tables of information about the inductees helpfully organized by field of achievement, year of birth, month and day of birth, location of stars in the sidewalk by both street number and inductee name, and the dates of ceremonies with acceptors. Full-color regional and street maps offer a helpful guide to the area.
This book makes a great gift for friends or clients, a memorable souvenir or a dynamic addition to your coffee table. It stimulates great conversation and ideas while showcasing the prominent role St. Louisans have played in shaping our nation’s culture and knowledge. Paging through you’ll be sure to feel the urge to proclaim to whoever’s near you, “I bet you didn’t know that Yogi Berra…”
