Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ed McCurdy (January 11, 1919 - March 23, 2000) was an American folk singer, songwriter, and television actor. His anti-war classic, "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream" (1950), inspired and gave hope to those in the peace movement. Born to a farming family in Willow Hill, Pennsylvania, McCurdy left home at 18 to pursue a singing career. He first found success in 1938 as a singer and disc jockey at a gospel radio station in Oklahoma. By the early 1940s, McCurdy, tall and handsome and with a big baritone voice, had become a popular singer of romantic songs in nightclubs across North America, until the legendary vaudeville fan dancer Sally Rand caught his act, hired him to join her show, put him in a tuxedo and had him sing his romantic songs to her on stage while pushing her on her swing. He stayed in vaudeville for several years as a singer and straight man to comedian (Fat) Jack E. Leonard, before moving in 1948, with his Canadian dancer wife and family to Vancouver where he hosted his own radio show for CBC Radio.
