From a 1936 Lawlor Journal column “In the Grade School”:
Lois Lee, after a successful “summer-full” of Professional engagements on the Bert Levey Circuit, went to work at Columbia, recording with Grace Moore for the picture “Interlude.” Other Grade-schoolers to work on this picture included Charles Meyer, Milada Rose, Betty Greco, the three Weidler boys, and Gloria Delson. [Note: The reference to the Bert Levey Circuit refers to a Circuit of Independent Vaudeville Theatres, which operated, as an agent for vaudeville artists and independent theatres. The movie “Interlude” was a working title for a movie released in February 1937 as “When You’re In Love” staring opera singer Grace Moore and Cary Grant. None of the children mentioned are acknowledged in the movie credits. – Alan Simon, for www.Mar-Ken.org]

From the Mar-Ken 1941 Yearbook, as a Sophomore:
Gloria Delson — Chicago, Illinois
Meet brown-eyed Gloria Delson who loves to practice singing,
For if she would achieve her aims, her low notes must keep ringing,
She relishes fried chicken, thinks badminton is keen,
And she’s striving to be a singer on radio or screen.

From the Mar-Ken 1942 Yearbook, as a Senior:
Gloria Delson: “Baby”, our glamour girl, is annoyed by “people-who-talk-to-her-when-she’s-reading-especially-when-she’s-interested-!” If they do she’ll probably say, “Oh, Crunch,” and go listen to some records, or play badminton. She wants to be a singer on the stage with a band. We’ll all be there, Baby.
