 In 1960, the San Fernando Valley's mega-comedian Lucille Ball opened in the Broadway show "Wildcat".  Lucille Ball's illustrious career is a major focus of The Museum's Library of San Fernando Valley Entertainment Industry History.

Leading the effort to build a San Fernando Valley list of notables is Lee Davis, Board Member of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley. This list provides very important evidence of our region's creative capacities. and provides role models for our school children in science, technology and the arts.
Assisting Lee Davis in his efforts is Museum Associate, Abby Marie is specializing on Valley notables who have made major contributions in the comedic arts.
