Other "Statlers" Of Interest
This page is dedicated to the other "Statlers" (people, places, and things that bear the Statler name, but that are not "really" family, but hey, you never know) that are out there. If you happen to come across any that are not listed here, please let me know.
The Statler Brothers
|Probably the most famous "Statler" is the singing quartet known as the Statler Brothers. Pictured left to right: Don Reid, Harold Reid, Jimmy Fortune, and Phil Balsley. The group first started off as the Four Star Quartet, later changing their name to the Kingsmen. After another group called the Kingsmen released a hit song, it prompted another name change. Sitting in a hotel room one evening discussing what to name the group, Harold spotted a box of Statler Tissues and the rest is history. For more information on the Statler Brothers, visit their official website.|
Update Jan 2002: On January 9, 2002, it was announced that the Statler Brothers will retire at the end of the year. A brief statement released from the Statlers' office in Staunton, Va., says the group will conclude their concert schedule Nov. 1, 2002. "The reasons cited for their decision to retire," the statement continues, "were simply to free themselves of a rigid travel schedule and to spend more time at their Shenandoah Valley homes."
Update 04/02/2003: I was informed that the hotel that the group was staying in when they saw the Statler Tissue box was the Sonesta Hotel located in Cambridge, MA. Also, the Statler Brothers' last public concert was held Oct. 26, 2002 in Salem, Virginia. Tickets for that concert sold out in one hour and twenty seven minutes.
|Due to the amount of information I have accumulated on this famous hotel chain, I created a dedication page for it. The Statler Hotel chain was started in 1908 by Ellsworth Milton Statler, who has been connected to the family through the diligent research of Andrew Edmonds and Mary Alice Blaylock. View Ellsworth's entry in our Family Database for more information about this famous Statler.|
|The Statler Muppet character first appeared on The Muppet Show which was created by Jim Henson. Jim also created a lot of the characters we have grown to love from Sesame Street such as Kermit the Frog, Big Bird, Grover, Cookie Monster, etc. Statler (the one on the right) was one of the two hecklers (the other was Waldorf, see the connection?) in the balcony of the Muppet Show theatre. These two were always giving the "act" on stage a hard time. For more information on Jim Henson and the Muppets, check out these web sites: www.henson.com and www.muppets.com.|

Statler's Rabbitry - Operated by JoAnn Statler
|JoAnn imported her Lionheads in 1999 from England. The five
rabbits she brought into the United States provided a foundation for this lovely little
breed of rabbit here in North America. Her willingness to share her knowledge and her
rabbits with those around her helped the Lionhead breed grow in popularity. You will find
Statler Lionheads behind many of the Lionheads bred in the USA today.
JoAnn only breeds purebreds Lionheads, so she has used these imported Lionheads as the base for her entire breeding program. With careful breeding of type to type she feels she has made great progress in improving head and ears. Her bloodline produces many Lionheads with great manes and many that hold manes as adults. As she has watched the Lionhead breed grow in the United States she has found great pride in the fact that she was the first serious breeder to bring the Lionhead Rabbit into America and begin promoting them to the fancy.
