Enrico Caruso

Caruso wanted to adopt my father, but couldn’t offer as much money as Gus Edwards was willing to pay, $15 a week to the family plus $15 a week to Dad, to be held until he was older. So at the age of six, Dad started starring in Edwards’ musical comedies and song revues, providing his natural family’s main source of income.
