Well Ted Heally In Those Days was named Lee Nash, did you every hear of that name?
Not in those days, i.e., 1923. He adopted the stage name of Ted Healy
sometime back in the 1910s. As "Healy," he was already an established vaudeville headliner in 1922.
His real name of Charles Ernest Lee Nash is generally known to Stooge aficionados. Recent research, including Texas birth and census records, has uncovered that his middle name is Lea
, not Lee. A typo in the official records? Maybe, but regardless, Lea
is the legal, recorded spelling of his middle name.
