I"m sure someone has found this before, but I can't find a mention of it.

I do a lot of geneology, and decided to use my Ancestry.com account to search for something fun, namely articles about Frank.

Criminy there are a lot of them.

The one that caught my eye was from the Valley News in Van Nuys, California, dated 20 May 1958. Titled "High School Summer Art Workshops Scheduled", it mentions Frank:

"The California Federation of Women's Clubs has a "Penny Art Fund" for scholarship awards to high school students and this year Frank Zappa of Lancaster High School has been awarded first prize, according to Mary Jane Thornborough, charman.

Frank is a student of Mrs. Shirley Eyler at Lancaster High School and of the ISOMATA Faculty in the summer.

The award carries with it a cash prize of $100 which Frank will use twards his tuition in the High School Art program at ISOMATA."

ISOMATA probablhy stands for Idlewyld Summer something or another.

Anyhow, one more teeny bit of trivia. How exciting.

Edit: I also found a couple of tv show mentions I didn't recognize - the "Louis Lomax Show" on 24 July, 1966, and "Murray Roamn's TV Show" 15 Feb, 1970.

Wow, I must have been really tired - that should be "Murray Roman's TV show".
