Stars on the Walk of Fame

Thanks to Bob Johnson for sending along this photo of the star for Bette Davis '26 on the Hollywood Walk of Fame during his recent travels on the west coast.

And of course we thank him for sending this second photo of Peggy Lee's star. Sure, it may have been placed for the famed singer Peggy Lee, and not our Co-Head of School and beloved faculty member Peggy Lee, but our Peggy sure deserves one!
