Durward Kirby

When I was a kid, it was a treat for me to be able to stay up late enough to watch CANDID CAMERA from time to time. Too young to recognize the inherent smarminess factor, I relished the stunts that Allen Funt and sidekick Durward Kirby shared with the audience each week. Little did I realize at the time that Kirby was, in fact, born in my own hometown. Last week, I noticed for the first time the historic marker seen here...just about four blocks from where I'm typing this even now!

This reminds me of the Rocky and Bullwinkle story involving the search for the Kirwood Derby.
