The first of two scrapbooks compiled by Johnny’s mother, Thelma O’Keefe, covers 1954-1961. This scrapbook documents his early years in the industry and contains a dizzying array of items, including reviews, advertisements, concert programs, posters, magazines, airline tickets and even receipts for venues hired for concerts. The scrapbook also contains a ‘Friends of Johnny O’Keefe’ fan club letterhead, envelopes, certificates and newsletters; the club kept Johnny’s growing legion of fans up-to-date with his latest achievements and upcoming events.
