Goodman Theater School - Chicago
Another rumor about his schooling is that he attended Goodman Theater School in Chicago. According to American National Biography: "Following the war, he lived in Chicago, where he studied acting at the Goodman Theatre School on the GI Bill. He also attended Indiana University, but he left without completing a degree." Several other 'biographies' echo this, but there is no solid evidence that he ever attended Goodman's. Shep's former wife, Lois Nettleton, in an interview with author Eugene B. Bergmann said she doubted he ever worked with the Goodman Theater.
