Talented Tuesday: Charles L. Crabill, Playwright

Charles L. Crabill spent part of his life as a policeman, and then worked for the state at a truck weighing station.

But early in his adult life, he wrote and produced a play called "Everybody's Hotel."


That's my Grandpa on the far left.

When we visited the Strasburg Museum during my latest visit to Virginia, we found that they had a copy of the playbill.




Unfortunately we don't seem to have a copy of the script. I wish I could read it!

  2. Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!

  3. What a great picture of your grandfather. He certainly had a varied interest in careers.
