March 12, 1960: Roy Chapman Andrews is not an author I think about very often anymore, but he wrote one of the favorite books of my childhood, “All About Dinosaurs.” I suppose he’s one reason I took all those anthro courses in college.

More on the jump, plus a frustrated writer threatens suicide unless he talks to Charles Brackett … Robert Blake stars in “The Purple Gang” … and Don Page looks at sports rumors on the radio. Note: Chick Hearn is a “good and improving” sportscaster.
