THE GREAT GILDERSLEEVE - WILLARD WATERMAN

BUILDING A GREAT MUSEUM FOR THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

Willard Waterman was one of the great radio, stage and film performers of his era. Radio lovers know his talent as the "Great Gildersleeve" from a spin off of the Fibber McGee and Mollie radio show. Waterman's character, Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve, the self-important and stuffy politician was beloved by Americans for at least three decades.
Waterman lived and worked in the San Fernando Valley with his wife Maryanne and two daughters.
In August of 1965, Willard Waterman played in "A Funny Thing Happened To Me On The Way To The Forum" at the Valley Music Theater.

That is Maureen Arthur as Hedy LaRue. She also played that part in the movie version of How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
