Absolutely love Monte. What ever happened to him? Is he still around? Saw a video of him in his later years, still a knock out.

I am confused by one thing: is his name Hansen or Hanson? In the AMG photos I have collected, it is spelled both ways. It alternates how Bob Mizer spelled it in AMG publications. I have a photo of one of Bob's index cards where it is spelled by him both ways. There is photo of Monte in a group where he is holding one of Bob's letter boards and in that pic it has a O. So, this is confusing because Bob Mizer seemed confused by it. Any thoughts about how to really spell his name?

I don't think there is a rational way to decide. And he is not even the only one. Lars Anderson (Andersen) comes to mind. I guess, many came from Europe with the "sen" finale and must have decided to adapt to the more american "son". That's how I see it. Or it has been the photographers choice.
