    A Gary Cooper, Judy Garland, Boris Karloff, Rita Hayworth, and Others Autograph Collection, Circa 1940s. More than ninety are contained in a 5.5" x 3.5" autograph album that belonged to a little girl named Ginger; her parents took it to the 1947 Theatre Convention in Hollywood and gathered some fine autographs for her. Some are written on the pages and others on odd-shaped sheets and cards glued to the album pages. Another group of approximately seventy-five signatures are on 5" x 3" blank index cards and contained in a modern photo album. A few of the great names include (in alphabetical order): Lucille Ball, John Barrymore, Nigel Bruce, Harry Carey, Ronald Colman, Gary Cooper, Michael Curtiz, Harry Davenport, Bette Davis, Henry Fonda, Judy Garland, Greer Garson, Betty Grable, Susan Hayward, Rita Hayworth, Sonia Henie, Harriet Hilliard, Bob Hope, Boris Karloff, Alan Ladd, Arthur Lake, Charles Laughton, Myrna Loy, Frank Morgan, Ozzie Nelson, Maria Ouspenskaya, Mary Pickford, William Powell, Ronald Reagan, Sabu, and Penny Singleton, among a few others; also included is a signed 1955-dated postcard from Jimmy Stewart with a handwritten message.
