Santa Barbara.

Sam Battistone co-founded Sambo's restaurant chain which grew to 1,117 national locations. Though the restaurant name came from a combination of the co-founders names, Sambo's used images from the much earlier book "The Story of Little Black Sambo" which some erroneously saw as racist, and it contributed to the chain's demise. Only the original in Santa Barbara is still going.




Frederick Peabody worked his way up in business, marketed Arrow shirts, and was chairman of the board of education in Sta Barbara. He donated a stadium to the high school, and land for Peabody Charter School.

You're doing a good thing in documenting these graves. I noticed one today where my initial reaction was "she's hot". Sad to know that she's gone. Suzy Parker. I know I'm many years behind the times. Your teenage interests can last for a long time.

Hi Richard: Suzy was a couple years before my time, I think. There are a few other Miss America/Playmate types in this collection, though. You never know who is going to turn up :-)

Kyle, everytime I come to this thread I'm amazed and entertained, it makes me remember movies and old TV shows that I haven't thought about in a long time. Keep up the good work!
