In 1966, Gary Lee Boas walked past the hospital in his hometown of Lancaster, Pa., and noticed a commotion of popping flashbulbs. "They were photographing a person I recognized as being a singer I saw on 'The Mike Douglas Show,' " he says. "Well, it was Robert Goulet. I didn't know his name, but I knew it was someone famous." Fifteen years old and starved for the slightest brush with fame, Boas ran home, grabbed his cheap Brownie Hawkeye camera and returned to the hospital.
