From Florida Memory
Cab Calloway, shot here in 1946 by the great William Gottlieb, was born on Christmas Day 1907 in Rochester, New York and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. Mr. Calloway worried his family by dropping out of law school to pursue a career in entertainment, but clearly it worked out for him in the end.
