Nice retrospective on an iconic G.I. (born 1901-1924) actress (b. 1915) who provided the stereotypical suburban mom to Boomer (born 1943-1960). When I watched the show as a fourth-grader circa 1960, I was more “the Beav’s” age, and my older brothers and cousins were more the age of Wally and Eddie. The older siblings were steadier, more responsible. We were all a bit wilder, a bit more risk prone, a bit more into our own little worlds. When June Cleaver said, “Ward, I’m very worried about the Beaver,” she had reason to be worried. She would have been terrified if she had known how many of us would later turn out.
