The Professor and Mary Ann… and Jeff

Yesterday, when I heard that Russell Johnson had died, my first thoughts were of the time we met him and Dawn Wells – The Professor and Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island.

Jeff with Dawn Wells & Russell Johnson

Many years ago I was the editor of a local newspaper and as such was regularly invited to the Hollywood Collectors Show in North Hollywood. Jeff went with us the day that Russell Johnson and Dawn Wells were at the show and they graciously allowed me to take a photo of Jeff with them. It’s one of my favorite photos.
