For the first time in Britain the class barriers were really down; in London, everyone seemed to know everyone. Through his association with Robert Fraser, The Stones and The Beatles, Michael met the artists, writers, poets and musicians of the time and the courtiers around them. He introduced these people to each other. Many of those who brilliantly lit up the decade on both sides of the Atlantic were photographed by him. His most well known photographic assignment was the album cover for The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.?" (Genesis Publications)

Impressed by his confidence and good looks, an agent arranged a screen test for the 26-year-old sports announcer at Warner Bros. Reagan signed a seven-year contract and moved to California. But he never forgot Pete and Hup MacArthur whom he affectionately called ?Ma? and ?Pa? (?Maw & Paw,? ?Mom & Pop?). He sent Christmas cards and letters to them on a regular basis from 1938 until 1948 when Pete died, continuing to correspond with Hup until she died in 1995 at 101. In full, ?I?m so sorry you were disappointed by not hearing from us during the Christmas holidays. Nancy and I decided to go back to our private citizen days and not send out Christmas cards since we do keep in touch with most of our friends throughout the year. It?s certainly not because you weren?t in our thoughts, so please don?t feel slighted. Having gone from a staff of 1400 to 14 in the last year, we have had to cut back on a lot of things we would have loved to continue. Again, please be assured that there was no ?Reagan Christmas card? this year. Nancy joins me in sending much affection and warmest wishes for a Happy New Year.?
