A bit of back round on the Stork Club......
"The Stork Club was the epitome of American glamour, sophistication and elegance from 1929 until 1965, when it closed. It remains an icon of 20th century American culture.

During the 1930s and 1940s, the best and brightest of American culture-makers gathered at the Stork Club; the list of regulars was endless, encompassing the czars of New York society, government figures, royalty, journalists, poets, actors, directors, songwriters and military men.  Can you imagine J. Edgar Hoover rubbing elbows with Ernest Hemingway; the Harrimans and the Kennedys seated next to Ethel Merman and Irving Berlin; Carl Sandberg sharing a bottle with Jimmy Durante.

  And it all began when my father, Sherman Billingsley, arrived in New York from Enid, Oklahoma, and started a little bar that became the world’s most famous nightspot."
