Shirley Temple died last night at age 85
It was about 7 a,m, on a Saturday, and the Redwood City Tribune had gone to press about five hours earlier. I was city editor.
Mrs. Black telephoned me to complain that we had associated her with the wrong charity in a story in that morning's newspaper.
I have forgotten the details, but who forgets being awakened in bed at home by the once most popular movie star in America!
