I've added the portrait of a young man I think may be Scotty Creager
to Files: Photos: Family & Friends.
This portrait is in the Honolulu photography studio's album that
contains two portraits of DB along with somebody's wedding and family
photos. Based on DB's appearance, I am guessing the date to be about
1937-1939; the age of this man also seems to be mid-30s, a good match
to Scotty. These three portraits are the only ones of men and all
are together at the back of the album. DB signed one portrait in
1950, alluding to the many years gone by.
Courtesy of TJ, I have seen a small, blurry image of DB and a younger
man that is supposed to be Scotty. Even from this image, the
likeness is quite close to the man in the portrait. The receding
hairline, wavy hair, approximate age and general physique all lend
credence to my theory. I will also add the small photo of DB and
Scotty to the Files -- see what you all think!
TJ has said he does not agree that the portrait could be Scotty. I
don't recall where TJ said he got the photo(s) that he e-mailed to
me. Jerry, was this yours? Or do you have a better one?
I guess I really, really want the portrait to be Scotty -- that would
make my day, my week, my whole year!
