Willard Lewis Waterman (August 29, 1914 – February 2, 1995)

Those Websters was a radio situation comedy series starring
Willard Waterman (above) and Constance Crowder as George
and Jane Webster. The program was launched in New York and
then moved to Chicago for a short time before finishing its run
from Hollywood.

It was heard Friday evenings on CBS from March 9, 1945 to
February 22, 1946 with Quaker Oats as the sponsor. On March
3, 1946, the series moved to Mutual where it aired Sundays until
August 22, 1948.

Two years after this series came to an end, Waterman replaced
Harold Peary as the title character in The Great Gildersleeve in
1950 on NBC.
