Trivia Tuesday: Elvis Presley

Trivia Tuesday: Elvis Presley

Hipsters are super jealous of that sweater

Today’s trivia is in honor of Senior Clerk, Pat Till, who is celebrating 40 years at the Davenport Public Library (and loves Elvis)! Congratulations, Pat!

  • Elvis Aaron Presley was born January 8th, 1935, and would be 78 today. Although born in Tupelo, Mississippi, he moved to Memphis at the age of 13.
  • Elvis had an identical twin brother who was tragically stillborn–his name was Jesse Garon Presley.
  • Elvis’ middle name was originally spelled “Aron,” possibly to mirror his twin brother’s, but had it changed later in life.
  • Elvis and Priscilla’s daughter, Lisa Marie, was born on February 1, 1968–nine months (to the day!) after their marriage on May 1, 1967.
  • Among other unusual pets, Elvis had a pet chimpanzee named Scatter. Scatter apparently had a fondness for womanizing and being generally mischievous.
  • Kurt Russell made his film debut at the age of 10 in the movie ”It Happened at the World’s Fair,” where he kicked Elvis’ shin!
