September 13th, ON THIS DAY IN ELVIS HISTORY

September 13, 1955

Elvis performed at the Shrine Auditorium, New Bern, North Carolina.
September 13, 1957

Scotty Moore was quoted in the Memphis Press Scimitar: "Elvis promised us that the more he made the more we would make. But it hasn't worked out that way."
September 13, 1959

Priscilla Beaulieu was brought to Elvis' house in the Goethestrasse for the very first time. Not a living soul present at that time had missed the immediate attraction of Elvis to this young girl. Elvis stated: " She is like the woman I've been looking for all my life". From this moment on Priscilla joined the group every night and weekend. The group got an other new member: Joe Esposito from Chicago.
Currie Grant brings fourteen year old Priscilla Beaulieu, whom he has met
at the Eagle Club in Wiesbaden, to the house on Goethestrasse to meet Elvis.
No one present misses his immediate attraction to the beautiful young girl,
and he tells Charlie Hodge not long afterward that Priscilla is "like the woman
I'd been looking for all of my life."

September 13, 1962

On the last day of location filming Elvis gave 2 Tennessee hams to the Washington governor and the head of the World's Fair. After that the group returned to Los Angeles, where cots and bedding were rented for Davis and Kingsley, 2 new members of the security group, so they could move into Elvis' Bellagio home.
September 13, 1963
People lined the streets hours early to catch a glimpse of their hero
prior to his appearance on the film sets in and around the Seattle World's Fair.
Over one hundred police and six special Pinkerton plainclothes bodyguards were
hired to protect Elvis during every minute of his filming. Colonel Parker
regretted that he had not set up a huge Seattle concert to coincide with the
Fair. Instead he sold hundreds of photographs of Elvis outside the fairgrounds.

September 13, 1966
Weekend speculated that Elvis and Priscilla had secretly been married,
which caused some of Elvis's fans to cringe and others to applaud.
Presley family members went to a sneak preview of Spinout. The King was
in Los Angeles, acting in another movie.
