Background

From the June 13th 1942 edition of the Joplin Globe:

Boris Aplon article head

     Above is Private Boris Apolsky of Camp Crowder, who has done more, perhaps, than any other individual during the last two weeks to make the public conscious of what the U. S. O. councils of Joplin and other communities in the Camp Crowder area have done to make camplife pleasant for soldiers and to build morale through the U. S. O.-sponsored hospitality extended by citizens in their homes.
     Apolsky has appeared before all the civic clubs and other groups here and elsewhere in the area, telling of the many services of the U. S. O. for men in uniform and expressing to audiences the high regard with which the organization is held by the soldier.
     Apolsky is in the special services section of the signal corps replacement training center, in charge of theatrical productions and other shows.  His background includes the playing of Ivan Shark on the "Captain Midnight" coast-to-coast radio program for four years , and working such radio shows as "First Nighter, " "Ma Perkins, " "Scattergood Baines, " "Lux Theater" and "Mert and Marge."
     Under the stage name of Boris Aplon, he appeared with De Wolf Hopper in Gilbert and Sullivan productions, having played the title role in the "Mikado; " Sir Joseph Porter in "Pinafore," and Major General in "Pirates of Penzance."
     He appeared in New York with Grant Mitchell in "Tide Rising" and for three years played from coast-to-coast with the Globe Theater Shakespearean Repertory theater, during which time he gave 3,600 performances in 14 Shakespearean plays.
     He was Brutus in "Julius Caesar, " Petrucchio in "Taming of the Shrew," and Angelo in "Comedy of Errors," among others.  He was in Hollywood to make the picture version of "Captain Midnight" when he was inducted into the army.
     Apolsky's education campaign will be followed by the U. S. O. financial drive, which will open with a "kick off" dinner in the Scottish Rite temple Monday night.  Three hundred volunteer workers will participate.

Digital Deli Too RadioLogIc


What you see here, is what you get. Complete transparency. We have no 'credentials' whatsoever--in any way, shape, or form--in the 'otr community'--none. But here's how we did it--for better or worse. Here's how you can build on it yourselves--hopefully for the better. Here are the breadcrumbs--just follow the trail a bit further if you wish. No hobbled downloads. No misdirection. No posturing about our 'credentials.' No misrepresentations. No strings attached. We point you in the right direction and you're free to expand on it, extend it, use it however it best advances your efforts.

We ask one thing and one thing only--if you employ what we publish, attribute it, before we cite you on it.

We continue to provide honest research into these wonderful Golden Age Radio programs simply because we love to do it. If you feel that we've provided you with useful information or saved you some valuable time regarding this log--and you'd like to help us even further--you can help us keep going. Please consider a small donation here:

We don't pronounce our Golden Age Radio research as 'certified' anything. By the very definition, research is imperfect. We simply tell the truth. As is our continuing practice, we provide our fully provenanced research results--to the extent possible--right here on the page, for any of our peers to review--or refute--as the case may be. If you take issue with any of our findings, you're welcome to cite any better verifiable source(s) and we'll immediately review them and update our findings accordingly. As more verifiable provenances surface, we'll continue to update the following series log, as appropriate.

All rights reserved by their respective sources. Article and log copyright 2009 The Digital Deli Online--all rights reserved. Any failure to attribute the results of this copywritten work will be rigorously pursued.

[Date, title, and episode column annotations in
red refer to either details we have yet to fully provenance or other unverifiable information as of this writing. Red highlights in the text of the 'Notes' columns refer to information upon which we relied in citing dates, date or time changes, or titles.]
