The Jewel Box Revue


Somewhere around the 1950’s

While surveying the collection of Elnorah Huff-Williamson, I came across a Jewel Box Revue Program. Doing more research, I was able to pin point its origin, which was speculated to have been founded in 1939.  However, based on primary records, its physical inception indicate 1942 in Miami, FL.
