ABOUT "Jean Arthur":
I was pleased to cooperate with New York governor Andrew Cuomo's office in providing for a "Walk of Fame" plaque for Jean Arthur at the new Adirondacks Welcome Center to open near Lake George this fall (2018). The plaque, which looks like a Hollywood Walk of Fame Star, will be one of the initial plaques to recognize famous persons with connections to the Adirondacks region.
Jean Arthur (Gladys Georgianna Greene) was born in 1900 in Plattsburgh, New York, in the Adirondacks region, and also lived in Saranac Lake, near Lake Placid, as a child.
The new plaque will supplement the one placed in Plattsburgh in 2015 (see below).
