This Day in GINGEROLOGY - April 21st

1926: Ginger appeared on the stage of Hunt’s Craterian Theater (‘Craterian’ is a ‘play’ on the phrase ‘Criterion’ for theaters of the 20’s – nearby Crater Lake inspired the ‘unique spelling’) in Medford, Oregon, during her six-month tour as the winner of the Texas State Charleston Champion; today, the theatre (well, the stage, anyway… grrr…) bears her name, after she became a resident of the Rogue Valley area in which it is located.

1982: Joe Sawyer (born Joseph Sauers), who starred with Ginger in the film “Campus Sweethearts” (as unnamed character), died in Ashland, Oregon, at the age of 75.
