The Name of the Day...

...belongs to Kathryn Trosper Popper, an actress who died on Sunday at age 100.

(Yes, that's Orson Welles with Ms. Popper in the picture above. She was believed to be the last surviving actor to have appeared in the 1941 classic Citizen Kane.)

In 1943 Kathryn Naomi Trosper married a lawyer named Martin Popper and became Kathryn Trosper Popper. Reminds me a little of a friend of my son's named Nate Beasley, who married a girl named Sarah Beasey (not sure of that spelling). Her name is now Sarah Beasey Beasley. And, to make matters even more complicated, Nate already had a sister named Sarah Beasley.
