IT'S A BOUNCING BABY
Buster Keaton is born in Piqua, Kansas, during a stopover
on a medicine show tour. According to local legend, a storm blew up
and the Keatons left their tent to go across the railroad tracks to
a boarding house, where Buster was born.
The Damfinos: The International
Buster Keaton Society was founded by Patricia Eliot
Tobias, Melody Bunting and Wendy Tobias at Anglers
and Writers restaurant in New York City.
