Elisha Cook, Jr. Day in Palo Alto


One of my weirder initiatives is Elisha Cook Jr Day in Palo Alto, in honor of the man who played Wilmer in The Maltese Falcon and an informant in The Big Sleep.

It is a ploy to lure David Packard Jr into my value web.

Also, David Thompson the writer and former Dartmouth professor.

I am incidentally the author and instigator of 3 or 4 other Mayoral proclamations here, including for Jerry Garcia in 2005, by Bern “not a deadhead” Beecham.

Maybe Don Herron could help me here.
