Unpaginated (28pp.). Original pictorial wraps, stapled as issued. Illustrated (adverts.). Rare. The OCLC Worldcat does not list any copies of this program in institutional holdings. The "Queen of Gems" and "King of Minerals" for this show happened to be Piper Laurie and Joseph Morgenstern, respectively. Piper Laurie is an actress who won an Academy Award for her role in The Hustlers (opposite Paul Newman). She also starred in films with Ronald Reagan (whom she dated before he married Nancy), Tony Curtis and Rock Hudson. She was nominated for another Academy Award for her role in Carrie and got her third nomination for her role in Children of a Lesser God. Joe Morgenstern is one of only three film critics to receive a Pulitzer Prize for his work. They were married at the time of this event. Both of their pictures are SIGNED in the program (Laurie's in pencil, over her head; Morgenstern's in ink over his head). There are other signatures in the program, mostly of speakers who presented topics during the show. They include James Hamlin of North Bridgton, Maine who demonstrated a workshop clinic, Olive M. Colhour (lapidary artist), Elmer B. Rowley who wrote, "Geology and Mineralogy of the Adirondack Mountain Region", and Henry B. Graves who lectured on "An Introduction to Faceting". Ownership inscription to the back cover, with his address. The whole is creased vertically down the center. Small ownership notation to the top right corner of the front cover. Ownership notations in the ads indicating the previous owners pleasure or displeasure with a handful of the advertisers.
