NARA Convention, circa 1964

Gregory Peck at a NARA (National Association of Radio Announcers, Inc., later to become NATRA) convention, probably in 1964. Left to right: Ken Knight, Gregory Peck, "Sir Walter", (unknown), and Novella.

Gregory Peck was the keynote speaker. Since this photo pre-dates the photo with the Supremes, I will guess that this is around 1964, just after Peck had given an Academy-award winning performance, starring in To Kill a Mockingbird (1963). Novella remembers him telling her, "I want you in my next movie!"

The original print of this photo was loaned to a media outlet in Houston, and never given back. This early-technology photocopy, unfortunately, is all that remains.
