BOXING CATS: 75 years ago, the featured act at Club Boulevard on North Grand was Eddie Fay and his boxing cats. The Post-Dispatch memorialized the act in a full-page spread on May 2, 1948; two days later, the Star-Times had a Humane Society rep warning Fay “against using rough treatment on the cats.” Fay had been promoting the boxing cats since at least 1941; he was still doing his cat act in 1963 when he appeared on Charlotte Peters’ show on KSD-TV. Archie D. “Eddie” Fay died in 1965. He was 73.
