I occasionally hear reference to Shemp's stroke in 1952, but have read very little about it, and I feel like I've read just about every Stooges book 10 times or more. While visiting Joan Howard Maurer last year, I asked her about this and she said she had never heard anything about Shemp having a stroke. She did tell me stories about tension between Shemp's wife and Moe's wife, but I'll save that for another thread. Anyways, anyone have the best source for finding out more about Shemp's 1952 stroke? I know he was also covertly taking nitroglycerin pills, but I believe this was for his heart.
