I thought I remember Barry Nelson being an expert bridge player also. For some odd reason, I was under the impression that he had passed away in the 70s, but I may be mistaking him for another Barry Nelson. Anybody have additional information? 21:09, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Barry Nelson the actor is alive and lives with a women named Nancy Hoy or Foy, I do not know if thay have ever married. The two of them have for years patronized the east coast antiques shows and are well known to the dealers who participate in those show as a friendly albeit extremely eccentric couple. Barry's health has deteriorated significantly in the past year or two. I saw him last in April of 2006 and he seemed to be somewhat addeled and frail.Robredrobred 02:23, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

I saw mrs nelson last week at The American Antiques Show in NY and at the Washington shoreham antiques show two weeks prior, she said that barry was doing better and he was to be a good a new in no time, but who knows. Last november he could barely walk.


The Associated Press article says he died at 89; then how could he have been born in 1920?

By the Way, what does he have to do with Norway? ----UTito

In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page.

This page is taken almost verbatim from the obituary linked at the bottom from The only basis for retaining the page is if the obituary writer posted it here. J S Ayer (talk) 03:55, 20 February 2008 (UTC) db-copyvio|url=

Or, ye gods, did they plagiarize Wikipedia? J S Ayer (talk) 03:57, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

I have disarmed the plagiarism warning, as it appears from comparison with the last version before Mr. Nelson's death that Wikipedia was plagiarized. J S Ayer (talk) 04:07, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Panel TV shows[edit]

Barry Nelson was a frequent guest on some of the celebrity-driven panel game shows of the 1950s and 1960s such as Face the Facts, and I believe at times, To Tell the Truth and I've Got a Secret, but I don't know a good source stating this fact. Does someone have this? It would seem to have been a significant part of his career, as it was for many New York-based celebrities and Broadway actors of the time. (talk) 23:32, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
