It has appeared in fan magazines during late 50s. Possibly Hep Cats or Dig.

Nice to have a date for the article!

If I may, bripet56, how do you know this is a front-page Memphis Press-Scimitar feature -- do you have access to an archive?

No, not anymore, but when I did the research for my book I spent a couple of days at the University in Memphis digging through the Press scimitar so I have copies of (I hope) every mention of Elvis in that paper from 1954-1958 plus a couple more months.

I also have a number of clippings from the Commercial Appeal but nothing near complete for those years.

Here´s my copy from the microfilm.

Thank you for the reply. I'm sure you would agree that a quality 12x12 book compiling all the photos and stories from the Memphis Press-Scimitar relating to Elvis during his career, from July 1954 to August 1977, would make for a valuable and fascinating reference, one of the most essential books on Presley ever. Yes, it would be a mighty undertaking, but the subject is worth the effort.

Maybe someday.

That's a cool idea...I would definitely buy a copy!
