A Groundhog Day Booksigning and Shep Documentary
Andrew Diamond wrote me about a booksigning at Sterns on Groundhod Day in 1967 which reminded me of a documentary "Channel Cat in the Middle Distance" done by Shep Fans Jon Sanger and Al Tedesco in association with the University of Pennsylvania. About 10 minutes in there is a 2 minute segment on the booksigning where Shep appeared with a live groundhog. It just so happens that the camera caught Andrew holding up a sign which he later had signed. (See photo above)

Pin given out by Shep in the 50's
Excelsior You Fathead!
Thanks to David Balkansky, we can now see a pin that was given out by Shep in the 50's. He wrote: "I attended several events in Washington Sq. with my kazoo, many others and of course Jean. At one of these gatherings he passed out a small, "Excelsior you fat head!" button."
