I have been researching the American humorist and author Jean P. Shepherd, Jr. (1921-1999), perhaps best known now for the classic movie, "A Christmas Story" (1983). He lived in East Chicago in approximately 1927-28, while attending McKinley Elementary School, before moving to Hammond. I am trying to identify exactly where he lived in East Chicago. Two likely possibilities are the Atlas Apartments on Forsythe St. (now called Indianapolis Boulevard), or perhaps somewhere else on or near Beacon Street. Does anyone have access to city directories or the like for the relevant years? Shepherd's father had the same name as his son. His mother was named Ann.
