A young Steve Allen?

I'm guessing it's Eddie's high school graduation picture...... but I could be wrong!
I have no idea who this is, but I have to congratulate you Eddie, on your success. Do you realize you have Emil Sitka following your blog? I've had no such luck on my blog. Vernon Dent won't even give me the time of day.
Theodore Marley Brooks?
Thanks for participating everyone! No one is right yet...especially, Kevin! There is a clue in the copy underneath the photo. Keep trying!
Is it Benny Goodman? Didn't he go to Jefferson Music College?
No and no. Did you guys click on the photo to make it enlarge? You can see a lot more detail that way, y'know.
oh, yeah...Andy! I was sure SOMEBODY out there would recognize Emil Sitka! A name like that you don't forget so soon.
James Dobson's strong willed brother?
A young Yakama Canutt?
A young Billy Sunday... or little lord Fountleroy all growed up...

Some great guessing going on here, but no prize! One last clue...and I do mean last...a lot of people did impressions of him.
Is it a photo of Anonymous?
That him! Arthur Stanley Jefferson (16 June 1890 – 23 February 1965), better known as Stan Laurel. His work with the Hal Roach studios is legendary.Fans will love this site: http://www.lettersfromstan.com/
