Sherman Billingsley (March 10, 1896 - October 4, 1966) was an American nightclub owner and former bootlegger who was the founder and owner of New York's Stork Club. From the time of the speakeasy until the 1960s, he held court on East 53rd Street. In 1951, the Stork Club began to decline in popularity after refusing service to Josephine Baker. Having witnessed the incident, actress Grace Kelly raced over to Baker and took her by the arm, storming out of the establishment along with a large party, all vowing never to return. The two women became close friends after the incident and Baker sued Billingsley and the Stork Club. After seeing that her actions had caused the club's ultimate demise, Baker withdrew her lawsuit in 1955, feeling vindicated. DATE PUBLISHED: 1946 EDITION: 136 [Attributes: Hard Cover]
