Thank you, Edward, for making the count 600 on Walk of Fame!

As signatures keep growing... "As great nephew of Mabel Normand I wholeheartedly endorse that Edna Purviance be given her rightful and proper recognition by the city of Hollywood at last. A great lady and star loved not only by Chaplin but by her millions of fans and colleagues in the early pioneering days of the motion picture industry." - Stephen Normand

Sunday, April 19th - Good to see all the new names on the list. One bit of a correction on this entry:

"Utah's first silent film star."

Edna Purviance was born and grew-up in Nevada, not Utah. Her parents met in Boise, Idaho, lived in Hailey, Idaho and in Paradise Valley, Nevada and Lovelock, Nevada. Edna's family never lived in Utah. But she did visit Utah in her adult years.
