Jean Shepherd on the History Channel
(November 1997)

Updated 8/8/01

Thanks to Bruce Clark I was alerted to an appearance Shep made for the program "The History of Thanksgiving" on the The History Channel®.
In two brief segments, Shep talks about Thanksgiving & Football as well as what people really thought of Norman Rockwell and the Saturday Evening Post.

Was Shep selling magazines at age 21? :)

Do you have questions and/or answers about Shep?
