On the Life and Death of Elliot Fishman

Dear Source,
It was a pleasure working with Elliot Fishman during my tenure as Director of the Alcohol Control Board. In the early '50s, Elliot Fishman and Henry Kimelman were responsible for bringing Geoffrey Holder and myself to the Virgin Isles Hotel to perform. From that time, our professional careers in show business were launched. It was a most gratifying experience.
