A group of people who meet yearly in Columbia, Missouri have a petition started to try to get a US stamp created in honor of Jane Froman whose life as you all know was beautifully portrayed by Susan Hayward in "With A Song in My Heart." If you would like to sign the petition, please click the website link above.
This is interesting and I'll see if I can find out more info.. it would be nice to do the same for Susan Hayward!
Below is the original note that I received from the lady who is working on a bio of Jane-- regarding the Jane Froman stamp......Ginger
This is just a note to ask for your help in getting a commemorative stamp
issued for singer Jane Froman (1907-1980), who was a personal friend and is
the subject of a biography on which I am currently working. A petition has
been created and I'm asking for your signature.
There is a Jane Froman Centennial event planned in her hometown of Columbia,
Missouri for 2007. Please sign the petition so we can get this small bit of
history accomplished to honor a truly remarkable woman as part of the
celebration. It takes just two seconds to add your name. And if you can
pass this on for more signatures, that would be a real help!he Jane Froman stamp...please pass the info along to your friends and co-worker, etc... thanks.
Thanks for letting us know, Ginger. I signed up and hope they'll get the required amount to do this. The woman deserves as much.
As for a stamp honoring Susan, I would love it. My feeling is, though, that other actors will get theirs first, such as Katharine Hepburn. However, one can hope.
That would be wonderful and seeing that she entertained our troops over seas, may help the process. Good luck.
