Another Treasure
From the Collection of
Steven Thompson

For two weeks straight, collector Steven Thompson has offered to share items in his collection with Bob Holiday's fans. Mr. Thompson unearthed this treasure from The Scrantonian newspaper dated December 5, 1965. This may have been the first public announcement outside of NYC that Bob Holiday had been cast as Superman!
Bob Holiday's Brother
Note the last sentence: "The Brooklyn born actor resides with his mother in New York City." Bob Holiday was a devoted son to his mother. With the exception of the few years he spent in California, Bob always provided a home for his mother. He even built a home for her in Hawley, right next door to his own home. Bob was always a generous and giving soul, and taking care of his mother was one of the most important missions of his life.
