|Canton Observer, March 6, 1975 (enlarge)|
March 13, 1975 can now be claimed as the definitive date for the beginning of Witch Watch. The picture with her talking to children was probably a ploy to soften her perceived image as was the clarification that she was not a demonologist or a devil worshipper. Not that it stopped some from believing it as many of the mentions of protests can attest to. Now I just need to find that initial column and also to figure out if the enterprise ended in 1980 as I've been unable to find any past Halloween of that year.
As for new material here: the dreams she had before embarking on a would-be national tour that ultimately made her decide to stay primarily in Michigan were something that I've never read before or even seen intimated. I'm still waiting on a definitive answer for whether or not she liked Dark Shadows but I suppose that I shall never know that answer.
