Marilyn Maye Timeline

She was named after Marilyn Miller, a 1920s singer and performer.
In 1939, she performed in a children's revue program in Topeka's Jayhawk Theatre.
Maye performed locally during the 1940s and 1950s until being discovered in 1963 by Steve Allen, later appearing on his television show.
In 1946, Marilyn graduated from East High School in Des Moines.
She found less work on the nightclub circuit as supper clubs declined in popularity. "I was too late to have a big career," she told Theater Mania. "It was amazing that I was able to as much as I did in the 1960s, and even more amazing that I was able to carry on into the ’70s — because by that time, of course, music had totally changed." The only concert work she could find was on the American West Coast, which had limited availability.
In 1961, the Holly record label released Marilyn...the Most.
