Served in the navy in WWII.

Wife Mona (Slattery’s real-life wife Talia Balsam), whose mother lives in Montclair, NJ.

Daughter Margaret (Elizabeth Rice). is age 16 in Ladies Room, so born around 1943. She sees a psychiatrist because she wouldn’t get out of bed. She’s dated two boys; one joined the service, the other committed suicide.

Roger had nannies as a child; Belva (Belvedere), before that; a round-faced German girl with enormous bosoms. Parents got rid of her after the Lindbergh baby (1932).

Roger had a heart attack on September 2, 1960, and another one in early October.

    Talia Balsam indeed looks younger than her years, but Margaret, not Mona, is 16 in Ladies Room…

    also, it’s Montclair, NJ

    Seriously, I was so tired. Both are typos… I live five minutes from Montclair.

    Mell, no, not at all. And PS, I’m gonna pull the comment about Rachel. It’s not a bio-addendum, it’s a post, and one that I’ll put on my to-do list.
