Fan Clubs  


  Although there are no official Shemp Howard fan clubs (other than websites like ShempCompany.com), you can get "plugged in" to fellow Shemp & Three Stooges fans through fan clubs.  
 
  The Three Stooges Fan Club
 PO Box 747
 Gwynedd Valley, PA 19437
 www.stoogeum.com
 
  This club was established in 1974, by Three Stooges fan Ralph Schiller, with the approval and cooperation of Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Joe Besser, and Joe DeRita.  In 1980, Moe Feinberg (brother of Larry Fine) took the helm of the club and operated it until his death in 1986.  Luckily for Stooge fans around the world, the club gained new life under the direction of a new Stooges "family member".  Gary Lassin, husband of Larry's niece Robin took over as president in 1986 and has operated the club for over 20 years.  In 2002, the Three Stooges Fan Club moved into its official headquarters, the "Stoogeum".  Along with being the headquarters of the fan club, the "Stoogeum" is a world-class museum which houses the largest collection of original Three Stooges memorabilia ever assembled.  Fan club president and Stooges collector extraordinaire, Gary Lassin donated his extensive collection to the "Stoogeum" for the enjoyment of Stooge fans everywhere.  This club also has an excellent online "newsgroup" on the Yahoo group service. You can enroll by contacting the club here. Membership in the club is $9.00 per year for Canadian and US Members and $12.00 per year for international members.
