A Lois Lane inspiration turns 97
One of the purported inspirations for Lois Lane is Lois Amster (née Rothschild), who happens to be the grandmother of a friend I met in BBYO in the 1980s. She is 97 this year, outlasting Jerry Siegel, Joe Shuster, and the other primary inspiration for Lois, the woman who became Jerry's wife: Joanne.
