Who is Jonas Grumby?

Who is Jonas Grumby?

Though rarely used after the series pilot, Jonas Grumby was the name of the Skipper on Gilligan’s Island.

You are not related to the Skipper; he is a fictional character from a TV show. But, if you are hard-pressed to fill out the real names on some of the branches of your family tree, in addition to regular weekday hours, the Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center is open on the second Sunday of January, February, and March from 1-4pm for genealogy and local history research.  Who knows? You might just find you have an ancestor in common with Alan Hale Jr. (the actor who portrayed the Skipper.)
