I hope you are well and enjoy your information. It often appears to be quite accurate. I think Arthur Treacher was an actor associated with Shirley Temple and would be an excellent addition to your database. He seemed very tall (e.g., 6' 4").
I would like to see your estimate.
Editor Rob: well I am replying 3 days late to this, but I had a look and saw Treacher being described from 6ft 3 to 5, he looked nowhere near 6ft 5 though!

I was in San Francisco a few years back and in the Fairmont Hotel when I saw her leave a meeting of the Commonwealth Club walking arm-in-arm with another icon - none other than Walter Cronkite himself! She was wearing pumps about 1- 1.5 inch heels and she was about up to his neck. I noticed that Mr. Cronkite was not very tall himself - maybe 5'7", so I think she may be 5'2" IN HEELS. She might be shorter than that.
