50's Study Hall

Fifties Study Hall: Famous Fifties Birthdays

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Welcome to 50’s study hall.  In this section, I will be publishing a series of lists that will allow readers to use them as a reference for the given topic. Please feel free to message me if any of the info needs correcting, or if you have anything to add.  I hope this section will help readers to find lots of Fifties Facts in one single place!

For this session of Fifties Study Hall, we’ll have a look at the Birth dates of stars in the 1950’s era and beyond. Most of these folks were born in the “Silent Generation” which would be the 1920’s through the early 1940’s. By the time the Fabulous Fifties came around, they were already famous!

This section will give you a quick reference of birthdays by month, and will also include the date of death if applicable. So check it out. Maybe you share a Birthday with one of these classic stars! (If I missed anyone, just contact me and I’ll add them.)
