While trawling through some old UBC Yearbooks I found this programme from 1966. 

I recall going to see Pat Boone with John Hembling. We had dinner at the Cave beforehand. When reading the menu he asked me if I would like Chateuabriand.  I had no idea what that was!  (It's fillet steak.)

Pat Boone crooned beautifully, of course, but again ... my strongest memory was of going back-stage (a thing I had never done!) to get his autograph.  We lined up in a corridor and when I my turn came  (can't recall if John joined me) I was shocked to realize that I towered over him!  He was very good looking, but so short!

Be that as it may, here is the very piece of paper he autographed for me.

Sigh ......
