Barney Fife and Friend

Margy Clark loaned me this bit of memorabilia from her late husband Dick. Dick went to high school and college with Don Knotts. They were even in the same fraternity at West Virginia.

In December 1938 the Hi-Y Club of Morgantown High staged its annual talent show. And sixth billed on the program was a budding your comedian who was known then as Donald Knotts. Don's act that night? Check out the program. He was a ventriloquist!
