A Coloring Contest for the New Sci-Fi TV Series, "STAR TREK", 1966.

September 1966.  "COLOR ME IN SPACE!  Meet William Shatner as captain of the U. S. S. Enterprise, a cruiser-si-e space ship, to be seen in the new NBC-TV series titled STAR TREK, in color.  Co-stars in this series include Leonard Nimoy and Paul Fix."

Okay Trekkies,  I thought I knew the names of all the major players in STAR TREK, but who is Paul Fix?  I watched STAR TREK all the time when I was a child but do not remember an actor by the name of Paul Fix being on the show.

Hileman Postcards from Glacier National Park

 Lake McDonald, Glacier National Park.  Photo by Hileman.  8000.  SA-H226.
 Going-To-The-Sun Mountain, St. Mary Lake, Glacier National Park.  3004.  Photo by Hileman.  SA-H215.
This postcard is not titled.  It is on the same page as the above postcards so I assume that it is of a scene in Glacier National Park.  All the post cards are glued down in the scrapbook.

The couples that took this trip were at Glacier National Park on July 11 & 12, 1947.  I have said it before, but this scrapbook is one of my favorite garage sale finds.
