This Was The First Star To Be Placed On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

In 1953, E. M. Stuart had an idea. Serving as the president of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce at the time, Stuart was inspired to create a "walk of fame" to celebrate all things Hollywood. To that end, Stuart appointed a committee to study the feasibility of creating a walkway of stars that celebrated those involved in the burgeoning entertainment community. Where this moment of inspiration came from, is not widely known. However, according to Walk of Fame, Stuart may have gotten the idea for his walk from his visits to the famous Hollywood Hotel. In particular, the ceilings of the dining room were painted with stars that included the names of celebrities. Either way, Stuart proposed the idea to the Chamber, calling his walk a way to "maintain the glory of a community whose name means glamour and excitement in the four corners of the world." By 1956, the city of Los Angeles overwhelmingly agreed to the proposal and the Hollywood Walk of Fame was born.
