I do not think they are by Marvin Israel. They look more like audience photos taken by fans.

Do any of the above appear in the book of Presley photos taken by Israel? I have it somewhere, I'll try to dig it out.

"Elvis Presley 1956" from Marvin Israel:

.... and only two of his fivehundred photogrtaphs of Elvis were published at the time.

In the book you'll find perhaps one hundred photographss - that means, there are some more unknown pictures from Elvis by Marvin Israel.

Wow! Superb photo's...this is the REAL Elvis Presley! I've only seen one of those photo's before and that's the one on the right hand side on the first batch of photo's. I don't own the Marvin Israel book yet, still on the look out for it.

True, but if you study the career of Marvin Israel you'll learn that he was an artist, and every one of the published Presley images in that book are all done with an artistic view. It is a sure bet that the unpublished Israel archive of Elvis images is more of the same.

None of the above photos are anything more than very casual snapshots, and likely done with a non-professional camera.

I bought this set from Bob in the 1970's. He put out a typed monthly (no photos) news letter '75-'78ish. I will look tonight to see if he had any additional info on these.

I don't have much more to add. The SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE newsletter speaks more about the Charity Event than the photos:

Bob was a ELvis fan as well as a kind man!!
I done some trading with him in mid 70's and he always kept his end of the deal,
I miss reading the tid-bits in his Something For Everybody newsletter.
.....Mr. Heis was one of the good guys.

Thank you for sharing this!

For one thing, it confirms the photos were taken by "a lady" and surfaced when her child brought copies of them to their homeroom teacher in Dayton, Ohio as a gift at Christmastime, 1975.

Also, it is interesting that 120 sets of these photos were sold for charity, and the names on the "thank you" list include you (!!), super-collectors Robin Rosaaen and Ger Rijff, and Elvis shutterbugs of the time, Sean Shaver and Harold Newton.

It was all only 37 years ago ... "ain't it funny, how time slips away?"

If nobody minds, in tribute to our friend Bob Heis, I could post scans of the newsletters through out 2014. I had the copies bound and was afraid to open them up flat for the scanner, but they seem to be fine. If you guys are interested in them. Let me know.

This might be my last post for 2013 so Happy Holidays everyone!!!!

I would love to read them -- it's a time capsule of Elvis fandom in the '70s. My wish would be you get FECC to create you a separate section to post them, and then upload your scans as time permits.

Happy holidays to you and yours!
