1943 Earlest mention of pianist Liberace...

Item # 200200

November 09, 1943

THE NEW YORK TIMES, Nov. 9, 1943  An inconspicuous article on page 25 carries the very first mention of the eventually-to-be-famous pianist known simply as "Liberace". The item under the heading "Musical Notes" states: "...The American Theatre Wing Stage Door Canteen will start tonight a series of appearances by youthful concert artists. Gloria Perkins, American violinist, and Walter Liberace, pianist, will play...". He was 24 years old at the time. A significant issue for any collector of this world-renowned and flamboyant pianist who passed away in 1987. Very nice condition.
