Happy birthday, Patrick Dennis.

Edward Everett Tanner III, aka Patrick Dennis and Virginia Rowans, whose Auntie Mame (1955) has sold more than 2 million copies, was born today in Chicago in 1921. An ambulance driver in Europe, North Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula during World War II, he also worked, later in life, as a butler. He died in 1976.
