The Great Boomsky Book Is Now Available


I'm very excited about this book. Margaret Steele has written a book about the life of The Great Boomsky, the assistant and sidekick to Alexander Herrmann. I do not have the book yet, so I can't give you an official report. But I can say, or repeat, how excited I am that such a book has been written and is now available. 

From what I gather, The Great Boomsky was actually played by numerous young African American boys with possibly Milton Hudson Everett being the original. I'm guessing this was a job that could only potentially last a couple years before you had to be replaced due to aging out. Herrmann wanted the part to go to a young boy, I guess there were no child labor laws back then. 

This book was apparently 20 years in the making. That's a LOT of research and I am confident this book will deliver. Margaret Steele's previous work with the Herrmann's was with the book on Adelaide Herrmann, that Ms. Steele edited and had published. That book was INCREDIBLE!!!
