About meBorn on February 26th, 1916, in Brooklyn, I would become one of the best known comedians of America. While I may be best remembered for my role of Ralph Kramden in the T.V. show The Honeymooners, I had roles in 26 movies, 11 different TV shows, and 5 stage performances, not including dozens and dozens of records. I would die on June 24th, 1987 in my home in Florida.

About my libraryMy library has about 1,700 books, journals, proceedings and pamphlets (~1,400 books). They are on a wide variety of subjects, but many focus on the parapsychology as that was a distinct passion of mine. Within the field of parapsychology, my library offers materials on such topics as: witchcraft, folklore, extrasensory perception (ESP), unidentified flying objects (UFOs), reincarnation, mysticism, spiritualism, mental telepathy, the occult, ghosts, clairvoyance, cosmology, demons, hypnosis, life after death, mediums, psychical research, voodooism, and others.

My library is held at the University of Miami Library which has an exhibit available:

heyy Mr Gleason -- I grew up with the Honeymooners, but especially liked you in The Hustler. Thanks a bunch for all the humor you brought us!
Jackie,

Good to see you here. "Silk 'N Brass" remains my favorite of all your LP's, and wouldn't you know I've never been able to find it on CD. Put a word in for me somewhere about it if your parapsychology explorations have suggested a pipeline.

Thanks again for many hours of audio and visual entertainment. Moe
