Clara Ann Fowler was born in 1927 in Claremore, Okla. According to Wikipedia.org, she graduated from Daniel Webster High School in 1945, and at age 18 began singing on a 15-minute KTUL radio show sponsored by the Page Milk Company. The show would give the young singer a new name — Patti Page — and enough exposure to launch a musical career spanning seven decades.
Page is probably best known for her cover of the Pee Wee King song “Tennessee Waltz,” which topped the charts in 1950. Modern audiences may also be familiar with her 1953 novelty song “How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?”
Sixty-five years after signing her first recording contract, the artist known as “The Singin’ Rage” still tours. The Campbell Hotel’s Patti Page Room honors her long, successful career with a decorating scheme inspired by her hit song “Mockin’ Bird Hill.”
Whether you’re a longtime fan or a newcomer to her work, you’ll rest well in this gracious, comfortable room, which can connect to our popular Route 66 Suite, making it a good choice for families traveling with older children.
